RandomForests

I am just posting R code at this time. The explanation is missing but I am making some progress.

library(ElemStatLearn)
library(randomForest)
data(vowel.train)
data(vowel.test)
> head(vowel.train)
y x.1 x.2 x.3 x.4 x.5 x.6 x.7 x.8 x.9 x.10
1 1 -3.639 0.418 -0.670 1.779 -0.168 1.627 -0.388 0.529 -0.874 -0.814
2 2 -3.327 0.496 -0.694 1.365 -0.265 1.933 -0.363 0.510 -0.621 -0.488

vowel.train$y <- factor(vowel.train$y)
set.seed(33833)
fit.rf <- randomForest(vowel.train$y ~ .,data=vowel.train)
plot(fit.rf)
varImpPlot(fit.rf)

I was asked to find the order of variable importance which this graph shows.
