Blood Relation II
In my last blog, we have discussed Direct form of questions that actually not tough to resolve, but the things can be harder as well. To make you people confuse, the examiner can ask in the indirect way to ensure your skills and smartness.
In Blood Relation, another type which is randomly asked in exams is “Form of Arithmetic puzzles.” Let’s take a problem:
Solve according to these following conditions: A+B means A is the Daughter of B; A*B means A is the son of B ; A-B means A is the wife of B then
If P*Q-S, Which is the following is true?
Solution: First, check what you have given and make it in symbolic form to understand the right format as:
P*Q implies P is the son of Q.
Q-S implies Q is the wife of S.

Now match every option with diagram:S is wife of Q = No, S is husband of Q.
Q is father of P = No, Q is mother of P.
P is daughter of Q = No, P is son of Q.
S is father of P = Yes, This is the right option.
Therefore, option “d” is correct.
if T-S * B-M, Which of the following is not true?
Solution: First, check what you have given and make it in symbolic form to understand the right format as:
T-S implies T is wife of S.
B-M implies B is wife of M
S*B implies S is son of B

Now match every option with diagram:** Note** Question is which of the following is not true means you have to choose one that is wrong. B is mother of S = Yes, it’s true.
S is the daughter of B = No, it’s wrong.
T is the wife of S = Yes, it’s true.
M is husband of B = Yes, it’s true.
Therefore, option “b” is correct.
If Z*T- S*U+P, What is U to Z?
Solution: First, check what you have given and make it in symbolic form to understand the right format as:
Z*T implies Z is son of T
T-S implies T is wife of S
S*U implies S is son of U
U+P implies U is daughter of P

Now match every option with diagram:Mother = No
Grandmother =Yes, right as U is female and mother of Z’s father S.
Can’t be determined= No
None of these = No
Therefore, option “b” is correct.
Another Indirect Blood Relation Type
Another indirect type typically starts with the words ‘Pointing to’, ‘Looking at’ or ‘Conversation between two’ is also questioned especially in Punjab Government exams.See how it comes in exam:
‘Pointing to’ the lady on the platform, Rani said, “She is the sister of the father of my mother’s son”. What is the lady to Rani?
Symbolize the given data reading it from the right side:
My mother’s son implies Rani’s mother’ son implies Rani’s brother.
Father of brother means Rani and his brother’s father and husband of her mother.
Sister of father implies sister of Rani’s father.

Now match every option with diagram to find what lady to Rani:Mother = No
Sister =No, Rani has no sister
Aunt=Yes, sister of father is become Aunt of Rani
Niece = No, Rani is niece to lady
None of these= No
Therefore, option “c” is correct.
‘Looking at’ the portrait of a man, Karan said, “His mother is the wife of my father’s son”. Brother and sister, I have none”. At whose portrait was Harsh looking?
Symbolize the given data reading it from the right side:
My father’s son implies harsh itself as he has no brother and sister.
Wife of father’s son implies his own wife.
His mother implies Harsh’s wife is mother of his son.

Now match every option with diagram to find whose portrait Harsh looking to:His son= Yes, Harsh is looking to his son’s portrait
His cousin= No
His Uncle=No
His nephew=No
None of these=No
Therefore, option “a” is correct.
Conversation Type: A man said to a lady, “your mother’s husband’s sister is my aunt”. How is the lady related to the man?
Symbolize the given data reading it from the right side:
My Aunt implies man’s mother or father’s sister.
Husband‘s sister implies again brother of Aunt i.e. father of man.
Mother’s husband’s implies man’s father’s wife i.e. his mother.
Man’s and lady’s mother and father are same, so he is talking to his sister.

Now match every option with diagram:Daughter = Man or lady has no daughter.
Grand Daughter= No relations of Grand’s.
Mother= No, the lady is not his mother.
Sister= Yes, he is talking to his sister as they both have the same parents.
Aunt= No
Therefore, option “d” is correct.
Try some questions from your side and do ask me the right answers.A man pointing to a photograph says, “The lady in the photograph is my nephew’s maternal grandmother.”How is the lady in the photograph related to the man’s sister who has no other sister?
Pointing to an old man Pawan said,” His son is my son’s uncle,” How is the old man related to Pawan?
Let’s see how much you have learned!.

Learn 4 simple methods of Squaring
In school days, we used to find squares, square roots, cube roots with long formulated methods, but when you are going to sit in competitive exams, those basics don’t work for you. Here you need tips and tricks to solve the mathematical problems that can fasten your calculation. Let’s start with squaring tricks…
Squaring Tricks
Before going further first of all, learn squares 1 to 30 and make it on your tips to speed up your squaring. Now when you start squaring
Always Remember:
Category I – Squaring from 322 to 992 – Results will be Four Digit Long.
Category II – Squaring from 1002 to 3162 – Results will be Five Digit Long.
Category III – Squaring from 3172 to 9992 – Results will be Six Digit Long.
Lets start with…. 4 simple methods of Squaring:
Squares Near 50 (Base 25- It come by squaring 52=25)
Squares Near 100
Split Method
A B Formulas

Squaring Near 50 and 100 are again divided furthur into two categories as shown below:
Square Near 50
Square Less< 50
Take an example:Question1: Find the Square of 46:
Step I: Check the category – 46 is under Category I resulting Four Digit Long answer.
Step II: You get 46 near 50 by subtracting 50-4=46 [Take Subtracting digit as main digit]
Step III: Take Base 25 and subtract main digit to get first two digits of the answer 25-4=21 [Subtracting digit will be subtracted in base 25]
Step 1V: Square main integer to get the last digits of answer 42 = 16

Question 2: Find the square of 39
Step I: Check the category – 39 is under Category I resulting Four Digit Long answer.
Step II: You get 39 near 50 by subtracting 50-11=39 [Take Subtracting digit as main digit]
Step III:Take Base 25 and subtract main digit to get first two digits of the answer 25-11=14
Step 1V:Square main integer to get the last digits of answer 112 = 121
Step V:To get the four digit long answer add both the Step III and Step IV results as:

Square Greater >50
Take an example:Question1: Find the Square of 56:
Step I: Check the category – 56 is under Category I resulting Four Digit Long answer.
Step II: You get 56 near 50 by adding 50+6=56 [Take Adding digit as main digit]
Step III: Take Base 25 and add main digit to get first two digits of the answer 25+6=31 [Adding digit will be added in base 25]
Step 1V: Square main digit to get the last digits of answer 62 = 36

Question2: Find the Square of 63:
Step I: Check the category – 63 is under Category I resulting Four Digit Long answer
Step II: You get 63 near 50 by adding 50+13=63 [Take Adding digit as main digit]
Step III:Take Base 25 and add main digit to get first two digits of the answer 25+13=38
Step 1V: Square main digit to get the last digits of answer 132 = 169
Step V: To get the four digit long answer add both the Step III and Step IV results as:

Square Near 100
Square Less< 100
Take an example:Question1: Find the Square of 97:
Step I: Check the category – 97 is under Category I resulting Four Digit Long answer.
Step II: You get 97 near 100 by subtracting 100-3=97 [Take Subtracting digit as main digit]
Step III: Take number whose square is to find and subtract from main digit to get first two digits of the answer 97-3=94
Step 1V: Square main digit to get the last digits of answer 32 = 9

Question2: Find the Square of 88:
Step I: Check the category – 88 is under Category I resulting Four Digit Long answer
Step II: You get 88 near 100 by subtracting 100-12=88 [Take Subtracting digit as main digit]
