The first section of this paper gives information about the development of fuzzy cognitive maps, & the second section gives preliminaries of fuzzy cognitive maps & combined overlap block fuzzy cognitive maps. The third section explains the methodology of determining hidden patterns & concepts of the problem are given in Section 4.
