none

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am not able to find out which are resistors are in series and are in parallel.Is there any special method to solve these problems?

Think about drawing this in a different way so you can see the parallel and series resistors more clearly

Use the symmetry of the circuit. There is a plane about which the circuit is symmetrical. By symmetry all the points in this plane are equipotential. Armed with this information you can simplify this circuit by removing a resistor as no current flows through it.
