Solution

The increasing magnetic field in the loop due to wire PQ is out of the plane of the paper (perpendicular to the plane). So, the direction of the induced current in the loop will be such that it produces an inward magnetic field (perpendicular to the plane). Thus, the current induced in the loop is in clockwise direction (using the right-hand thumb rule).
