Blood Relation refers to the connection between two individuals established through their birth rather than through marriage or any other factors. Blood Relation questions entail the analysis of information depicting the familial relationships among its members. In these questions, a series of relationships is presented in informational form, and candidates are required to determine the relationship between two members of the family based on this provided information.
Candidates need to be acquainted with the hierarchical structure of the family, typically spanning three generations above and three generations below the current generation. In essence, Blood Relation reasoning involves inquiries aimed at identifying relationships among family members. Using the provided information, candidates must deduce relationships, such as those by birth (e.g., mother, father, son, daughter) or by marriage (e.g., father-in-law, mother-in-law, sister-in-law).
Now that we have an understanding of what constitutes a Blood Relation reasoning section, let's explore the various types of Blood Relation reasoning questions individually.
P $ Q implies that P is the sister of Q
P % Q implies that P is the brother of Q
P & R implies that P is the mother of R
P @ S implies that P is the son of S
Now find out the relationship between F and D from the following expression such as D % C @ G $ H $ F
Solution: The above statements implies the following things.
So by analysing the above table we can deduce the above expression D % C @ G $ H $ F as “D is the brother of C”, “C is the son of G”, “G is the sister of H”, and “H is the sister of F”. The gender of F is unknown. So F can be either uncle or aunt of D. Therefore, the correct response for this question will be “Uncle or Aunt”.
