Solution:

There are 7 females and 6 males.

Assume that there are four sexes - male, female, X and Y.

L(m) H(f) M(f) A(m) E(x) I(y) D(x) B(y) C(x) J(y) K(y) F(y) G(x)

It is clear that there are altogether 13 persons - 2 males, 2 females, 4 Xs and 5 Ys. It is given that there are more number of females than male. Hence, all Y must represent female. Thus, there are 7 females and 6 males.
