Cannot be determined


Answer

 Option

B and F are children of D. A is grandmother of F. So, B and F represent third generation. Now, C is the daughter-in-law of E. So, A and E form a couple and represent first generation. A, being grandmother, is a female and so E is a male. C is the daughter-in-law of E and D is E's son. Thus, CD is the other couple and represents seconds generation. C likes black, B likes pink. Green and yellow are the preferences of a couple. So, F likes white and D likes red. Now, E likes white and so cannot be a lady. B is the son of D and hence a male. AE and CD are are two couples.
