In column 6, 1 can ONLY go in box 5(r4c4-r6c6) so you can eliminate 1 from other cells in box 5. So r4c4 - {7,8} and r6c4 - {5,8,9}.

If you look at box 5, {1,2} can ONLY go in r4c6 and r6c6. This i ...

In column 3, 8 can only go in box 7(r7c1-r9c3) so you can eliminate 8 in other cells in box 7. So r7c1 - {4,5} and r7c2 - {1,2,4,5}

If you look at box 2(r1c4-r3c6), 2 HAS to go in row 2. The 2 at r8c5 prevents 2 from being able to fit in at r1c5 and r3c5. So you can eliminate 2 from other cells in row 2. So even though r2c9 CAN ...

Sudokus are fun... but don't neglect your family to play it! Just get them hooked on it as you are. Then you all can neglect one another. :D

r3c6 should be {1,9}. You have a 5 in there but that's ...

r2c5 only has possibilities of {2,8}. r6c5 also only has possibilities of {2,8}. So you can eliminate 2 and 8 from other cells in column 5.

r3c8 and r3c9 can only be {2,5} so you can eliminate 2 and 5 from other cells in box 3(r1c7-r3c9). So you get {3,4} at r1c9 and {3,4,6} at r2c9.

I'll try to explain it with elimination method.

At your position, these are the logical steps I took.

In column 1, 6 has to be in box 1(r1c1-r3c3) so you can eliminate 6 from other cells in box 1. ...

2 in row 9 can ONLY go in box 8(r7c4-r9c6) so you can eliminate 2 from other cells in box 8. So r8c4 becomes 4 or 9.

This creates a pair at r7c4 and r8c4 of {4,9}. So you can eliminate 4 and 9 from ...

Yeah, you have two 4s at column 4. Your solution was almost way off from the final answer. That column 4 probably messed you up.

Perhaps someone else can elaborate the rule?
Two questions:
Is my elimination of 7 from r1c2 and r3c2 (described above) correct?
What cells are involved in the XY-wing?

Well, 6 is a possibility at r9 ...

I don't know if this is easier but I'll make the solution more logical.

r1c4 and r1c6 both only can be 3 or 7. So you can eliminate 3 and 7 from other cells in box 2(r1c4-r3c6) and get 2 or 6 in r3c ...

You need X-Wing for this.

By looking at the grid, 8 has a X-Wing at r2c6,r2c7,r8c6 and r8c7. So you can eliminate 8 at r1c6, r1c7, r4c7 and r9c6.

See if you can solve it after those eliminations.
