Which of the following statements are TRUE for damped vibrations?

$$P.$$ For a system having critical damping, the value of damping ratio is unity and system does not undergo a vibratory motion.
$$Q.$$ Logarithmic decrement method is used to determine the amount of damping in a physical system.
$$R.$$ In case of damping due to dry friction between moving surfaces resisting force of constant magnitude acts opposite to the relative motion.
$$S.$$ For the case of viscous damping, drag force is directly proportional to the square of relative velocity.
