Only 3.

A grandmother is an old lady, her daughter a middle-aged wonen and small girl.

The old lady is the mother of the middle aged women. The middle aged women is the daughter of the small girl. So we have two mothers and two daughters.

The old lady is the grandmother of the small girl. Thus the girl is the granddaughter of the old women.
