The figure shows some of the steps Jane took to draw a line segment parallel to line segment XY at R.

Jane plans to perform these steps next.

Step 1. Set the compass at point S and adjust its width to point T
Step 2. Fix the compass at point L.
Step 3. Using the same width, draw an arc to intersect the line RJ at M
Step 4. Use a straightedge to join the points R and M
Which is the first incorrect step ?
A: Step 1
B: Step 2
C: Step 3
D: Step 4
