Questions (01-05)
On the basis of the given clues we get the following information:

 Car Persons travelling in car P F (-), D(-) Q B(+), E(+) R A(-), ? (-)
Besides this, we also came to know C is a female but still we do not know about the sex of G. But it is given that there is at least one female in each car. The above table shows that the car Q needs a female to fulfill the condition described above. Hence, the seventh person is a female, ie., G is a female. But still we do not know among the cars Q and R, in which car C and G are. But it is clear that both are not in the same car. Let us proceed to draw a family tree.
Since C does not travel with her grandfather and grandmother, C in not in the car P and in Q. Hence C is in the car R and G is in the car Q. Still we are not aware of Gโs position in the family tree.
