  1. Can you show an example of the json file?
  2. You can use the ‘json’ gem from the standard library. The JSON.parse reads in a JSON formatted string passed as an argument, and returns a hash:
require 'json'
JSON.parse(%q/{"hello": "world"}/)    # => {"hello"=>"world"}

{
“name”: “John”,
“age”: “twenty”,
“cars”: [{
“name”: “Audi”,
“models”: [“Fiesta”, “Focus”, “Mustang”]
}, {
“name”: “BMW”,
“models”: [“X1”, “X3”, “X5”]
}, {
“name”: “Fiat”,
“models”: [“Xuva”, “Panda”]
}
]
}

The simplest thing to do is a nested loop building the table.

Suppose you have An array of records like the one you presented, named db, What about:

table = []
db.each do |record|
  record["cars"].each do |car|
    car["models"].each do |model|
      table << [record["name"], record["age"], car["name"], model]
    end
  end
end

Then write that Array table to a CSV file.
