Parsing through XML C#

I'm parsing through an XML document. There is  Parent "Q" and Child "G"

I am only interested in retrieving the parent data.

There are two problems

1. If there are no children, the parent is ignored and I don't see the results in the list
2. If there are children, the output writes the same row for the number of children. Should only be a single parent written

var results2 = (from System.Xml.Linq.XElement w in xmlDoc.Descendants("Q")

                                select new

                                {

                                    Qxml = new QUEUES

                                    {

                                       QID = (w.Attribute("id") != null) ? Convert.ToInt32(w.Attribute("id").Value) : 0,

                                       QNAME = (w.Attribute("n") != null) ? w.Attribute("n").Value : " ",

                                       QAS = (w.Attribute("as") != null) ? w.Attribute("as").Value : " ",

                                       QAT = (w.Attribute("at") != null) ? w.Attribute("at").Value : " ",

                                       QAI = (w.Attribute("ai") != null) ? w.Attribute("ai").Value : " ",

                                       QAP = (w.Attribute("ap") != null) ? w.Attribute("ap").Value : " ",

                                       QAW = (w.Attribute("aw") != null) ? w.Attribute("aw").Value : " "

                                   }

                              }).ToList();

 

                allQueues = results.Select(a => a.Qxml).ToList();

I tried your code. I get one QUEUES object per Q element. Nothing in your code depends on the presence of G elements, or their number.
