Need help about identifying resistors in parallel and series

I find it extremely confusing to identify which resistors are in series and which are in parallel in a given circuit especially when circuit is complicated. Is there a general procedure by which I would be able to identify these?

Thank you

you can just see in a simple circuit whenever you see division of current that means there is some branching so at that point resistors are in parallel if the same current is passing witout division that means it is in series
