  • Read a lot : Reading is a good habit. The more we read the more the knowledge we will get. But simply going down the lines can't be called as reading. Read to understand. Read to remember. We should read as much as we can. We should not restrict ourselves to the subject we are familiar with. We should try to read new subjects and even novels and fictions also. They all will make our mind sharper.

  • Be with smart people : We should try to spend some time with the people smarter than us to observe how they are approaching an issue and how they are trying to solve the issues. This will make us more intelligent and our mind will also start working in similar lines.

  • Think out of the box : When we are in a dilemma we should not restrict our thinking with the subject we know. We should try to come out of that shell and think out of the box. This process will make us improve our intelligence.

If we attempt to solve those problems our intelligence will improve. But in solving these puzzles we should be sincere. We should not forget that we are doing it for our betterment for not for any rewards. Sudoku is one such puzzle which is available every day in many newspapers and there are many printed books.
