What is Blood Relation?

Blood Relations mean any relation between two or more persons which is acquired by them by the virtue of their birth. It is found between two individuals is defined as a relation between them by virtue of their birth rather than by their marriage or any other reasons.

It is a biological relation. Remember a wife and husband are met biologically related but they are biological parents of their own children,

Similarly, brother, sister, paternal grandfather, paternal grandmother maternal grandfather, maternal grandmother, grandson, granddaughter, niece, cousin etc. are our blood relatives.


What are the types of Blood Relatives?

There are mainly two types of blood relatives:

  1. Blood relation from paternal side
  2. Blood relation from maternal side

Lets see the concepts one by one as follows,

1. BLOOD RELATION FROM PATERNAL SIDE

This type of blood relation can be further subdivided into three types:

  1. Past generations of father:

    Great grandfather, great grandmother, grandfather, grandmother etc.

  2. Parallel generations of father:

    Uncles - Brothers of father, Aunts - sisters of father etc.

  3. Future generations of father:

    Sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters etc.

2. BLOOD RELATION FROM MATERNAL SIDE

This type of blood relations can also be subdivided into three types:

  1. Past generations of mother:

    Maternal great grandfather, maternal great grandmother, maternal grandfather, maternal grandmother etc.

  2. Parallel generations of mother:

    Maternal uncles, maternal aunts etc.

  3. Future generations of mother:

    Sons, daughters, grandson’s, granddaughter’s etc.

In the exam, the questions are given in a complex manner. In other words, in the given questions, the easy relation takes a complex form and the examinees are expected to solve this problem to find the correct answer.


How does an examinee get help for this problem?

For this, an examiner looks at the data given in the question with a keen eye; It then tries to establish relationships between elements of the given data based on specific logic and finally finds the required answer. In fact, problems arise with the question asked because of the indirect communication given. The questions are in the form of indirect relation and it means that this indirect relation should be converted into direct relation.

For example: "my father's only son" means 'I' (myself).

Here in the place of 'I' the indirect relation is given in the form "only son of my father".

Similarly, "Queen's husband's parents' in-laws' only daughter" means 'Queen'. In this example also "the only daughter of Queen's husband's parents' in-laws is given in the form of indirect relationship.

Below are some indirect relationships in tabular form. Candidates should memorize these 3 tables. If one keeps this list in mind, solving problems based on blood relations will be much easier & faster.
