    In E. coli, four Hfr strains donate the markers shown in the order given:

    strain 1---Q---W---D---M---T
    strain 2---A---X---P---T---M
    strain 3---B---N---C---A---X
    strain 4---B---Q---W---D---M

    All these Hfr strains are derived from the same F+ strain.

    What is the order of these markers on the circular chromosome of the original F+?
