Dear maaadhu,
I'm happy to respond. :-) With all due respect, you have not done a very good job of asking your question. Use complete sentences. Be very clear about exactly what you mean. For example, in the phrase "5 distinct things in 4 distinct groups," I have no clue what you are trying to communicate. You need to explain a specific example in detail.

Part of being an excellent student is learning how to ask high quality questions. If you can ask truly high quality questions, then you will get all the information that you need. This is a very difficult skill to learn, and students often underestimate how much it can help them.

Mike :-)
