[R] Help with error: arguments imply differing number of rows

If this error had happened to me, then immediately after receiving that
error I would type
traceback()
at the R prompt. Hopefully, that will provide some information about what
happened.
Based on:
Error in data.frame(PD = PDs, SR = SR) :
arguments imply differing number of rows: 34, 35
It appears that PDs and SR, whatever they are (referring to the versions
on the right hand side of the equals sign), have or imply different
numbers of rows. For example, PDs could be a vector of length 34 and SR a
vector of length 35. Your task is to figure out how they got constructed
inside the pd() function, which will lead to why they are different. This
will require some understanding of what happens inside the pd() function,
and there, unfortunately, I can't help you.
Typing
pd
at the R prompt might reveal the entire definition of the pd() function,
from which you might be able to trace the calculations.
