Q. 2

Find out the location of spring, mosque, railway station, police station, and well in the given grid, using the 6-figure grid reference method.

Now, the 6-figure grid reference method is only slightly different from the 4-figure reference method.

To use the 6-figure grid reference method, one must imagine another set of grids over any particular square(s), such that the square is further divided into 100 tiny squares.

Finally, while refereeing any particular tiny square within the bigger square, the eastings go first followed by northings.

For example, 34_55_, the blank spaces in the 6-figure grid reference are for the easting and northing of the tiny square.

Therefore, in the given square (usually if 6-figure grid reference method questions are asked, a corresponding grid structure will be provided), the location of the following are (in approximation):

Spring: represented by symbol +, is in the square 3554, and is approximately in the tiny square with reference 78. Thus, the location of the spring is 357548.

Mosque: represented by, is in the square 3454, and is approximately in the tiny square with reference 36. Thus, the location of the spring is 343546.

Railway Station: represented by ‘RS’, is in the square 3554, and is approximately in the tiny square with reference 53. Thus, the location of the spring is 355543.

Police Station: represented by ‘PS, is in the square 3454, and is approximately in the tiny square with reference 53. Thus, the location of the spring is 345543.

Well: represented by a circle, is in the square 3554, and is approximately in the tiny square with reference 18. Thus, the location of the spring is 351548.
