Abstract: Retrieval of information is the presumption of a real-world user declaration based on the concept of storing, representing, and searching information. It also uses the database to easily access the repository of information. Developing a system that can come up with the ambiguous user needs is a complex task, as each of the incoming queries from the user to the system is unique. The expectations from the system are high in order to fulfill the information needs of the user. The fluidity of the human brain is extremely high, because each person has different cognitive abilities, values, thinking, interpretations, situations, intent, instincts, and domains. Such various characteristics lead to a user's query about or need for data; hence, it could be said that individual users have different apprehensions of query. The key requirement is to consider the users' query to provide the individual with effective and appropriate results according to the knowledge required. This paper implemented BB2 hybrid with a fuzzy logic inference. The purpose of the system is to map the IR model using the fuzzy approach with the cognitive abilities of the user. The similarity between the file, depending on the graininess of the user, was calculated using fuzzy logic to evaluate the query results.
