The rattle snakes as shown below are to be seperated from one another with the help of just 2 squares. Can you figure out how to draw the squares ?
( P.S: Squares can come out of the given square in the image )

See the attached Image for the answer -

You make a cross.
1 square is horizontal around the middle row
1 square is vertical around the middle column

That would be a rectangle and not a square ! There's an elegant solution to this with just 2 squares. Think !

the outer square is provided by the examiner. the inner squares separate the nine rattlesnakes
