You noted the earlier comment, about being married a minimum of two years? There is no virtue in applying beforehand. It not only wastes time and money. It also demonstrates that you can't understand simple rules and an 'Invalid on receipt' application wouldn't look very good on your record.
1) What race did you indicate on the forms when you got married here? Can you use the same? Would 'other' or 'mixed race' be an option to use?
2) Tricky one. It sounds like the form presumes you live in SG. But SundayMS said you can apply from abroad. I'll leave this question to the experts!
3) I don't know the form, but I'd have thought 'Deceased' might be appropriate.

it's INDONESIAN.

They asked for permenant address in Singapore. I shall provide my address. but living in or not how shall I fill it. anyone knows?
3) I don't know the form, but I'd have thought 'Deceased' might be appropriate.

I'd have thought that was nationality, as there is more than one race in Indon. But if it was acceptable on your marriage application it suggests it might be on your PR application.

Can't help with this one, maybe you should e-mail ICA and ask them.

I think (just my personal impression) this question serves two purposes:
i - It serves to build a picture of you and your family background. Was your father a general attached to the government, or of a less influential/sensitive background?
ii- If they grant you PR, how likely is it that you will then seek to move your family to Singapore? I.e. they'll likely check how regularly your family members have previously travelled here. And also gauge the extent to which your family are permanently established back home. To be clear and for example, if you were to list say 5 family members, and most/all of them visit SG regularly, or even each year for close to the maximum time permitted, then I imagine they're going to perceive a higher risk of these individuals seeking to live here. For them it's about trying to get a bigger-picture, beyond just simply you as an individual applicant.

So with those points in mind, if I were you I'd answer the first 6 questions which allows them to check and consider background. And then I'd note 'Deceased', not try and answer the others questions, except the final question as 'No'.

Just my inexpert 2c...
