1Which car would you remove?

Answer:

The third one. Because if you look carefully, it is the third one that is preventing all the other cars from moving. If the third one is removed from the scene, then the yellow car can move forward followed by the green. That would allow the blue and orange car to pass after which the road gets free for the green and mauve cars.
