Like Janam Kundli, First House of the Prashna Kundali is very important. Although only some specific Prashnas are seen from this office but all other Prashna of various house are also analyzed by keeping this house in mind and its relation with that particular house of Prashna.
Success or failure of the Prashna is directly related with the strength of this house. For the Prashna related with First House, strength of the Navamsa Lagna should also be seen along with the Lagna of Prashna Kundli.
Past, Present and the Future, all the three kaals of the time will be indicated by the planets which will be in Musharpha, in conjunction and in Ithasala with the ascendant lord respectively.
If Mercury situated in the ascendant is also in aspect of the Moon or a malefic then there will be gain of wealth but it also indicates untoward happenings.

Basically for the Prashna related with finance and financial gain, second house of the Prashna Kundli become important and subject of consideration. If the Moon occupy the fourth or the seventh house, the Sun occupy the Tenth House and a benefic is situated in the Lagna then it will confer immediate gain of money in finance related Prashna. Jupiter occupying the Lagna will indicate the same result.
A benefic planet occupying second house of the Prashna Kundli will indicates increase of family wealth, gains of vessels and family amity; and also happiness. If the lord of the second house is in Ithasala with the Lagna lord of or the Moon; or is in conjunction or aspect of benefices, gain of money is indicated in the Prashna related to finance benefices.
If the Lagnesh of the Prashna Kundali is in Ithasala with the second lord or Lagnesh is in second house and also in Ithasala then this indicates gain through that Bhava in which slower moving planet is situated.
When the Moon, Lagnesh and the second lord of the Prashna Kundli are in conjunction or in mutual aspect occupying the second house or a Kendra or a Trikona then it indicate immediate gain of the querent.

If the lord of the second house is in Muthaseela Yoga with malefics then there is danger of life of querent.
In Prashna related with brothers, friends and their happiness, courage etc. third house of the Prashna Kundali become important and subject of consideration.
A benefic planet occupying Third House indicates good conduct, courage, happiness to brothers, increase or help from others and good health of the querent. Querent’s brothers will be good and they will be happy if the Third Lord aspects the Third House or if the third house and the lord are aspected by benefics. Otherwise, there will be contrary results.
A malefic in the Third House will indicate misunderstanding with brothers, friends and people who help the querent; misfortunes to brothers, diseases of the chest, neck and right ear; mental affliction, bad conduct and cowardice.
If the Third Lord is in the sixth house and also in Muthaseela with sixth lord; or if the sixth lord is in the third house or the Third Lord is associated with malefics, the health of the querent's brothers will not be good. Combust Third Lord indicates dangerous disease of querent's brother. The source of affliction will be in accordance with the planet that is in Ithasala with the sixth lord or the eighth lord.
Like Janam Kundli, Fourth House of the Prashna Kundli deals with mother, vehicles, landed property, happiness from the house etc. If the querent ask the Prashna about any of the them.
Then the Fourth House of the Prashna Kundli along with its Lord becomes important and subject of consideration. It should also be noted that this is the Kendra of the Kundli so need more attention. Its relation with Lagna and Lagnesh should also play an important role when querent ask Prashna related with this house.
According to Prashna Marga, a notable classical of Prashna Shastra, in the Prashna of the leasing of land, the ascendant of the Prashna Kundli will signify the querent, the seventh house will indicate the lessee, the Tenth will indicate the production while the Fourth will rule the final profit, etc.
This shows that all Kendra will play important role in this type of Prashna. Benefits accrue if the all the Kendra and their lords will be connected with benefices. Their affliction will indicate contrary results.
If malefics are in the Fourth House, final result all the Prashna related with Fourth House will be unfavourable.
Occupation of Fourth House by a benefic planet will indicate good health of mother, gain of vehicles, lands, cattle, beds and general prosperity as well as health of the querent. If the Lagnesh has Mutthashila with the Moon in the Fourth house or Lagnesh is in Lagna then the querent will come into possession of lands.
Position of a malefic in the Fourth house indicates distress to mother and maternal relations, loss of cattle, beds, cots, landed property and vehicles, heart trouble, general misery and discomfort due to impure water.
In the Prashna of the leasing of land, if malefics are in the seventh house then whoever the lessee is, he will definitely suffer. According to Prashna Marga, if the Prashna is related with crops and there are malefices in Tenth house then the querent will derive no benefit even if the crop yield is satisfactory.
Similarly, if the Lagnesh has Mutthashila with the Moon in the Fourth house or Lagnesh is in Lagna and afflicted by malefics then the querent will not get good results at all.
