Another way: Any letter (x, y, z, w) can be included or not. So, we have 2^4 combinations - 1 empty combination = 15 combinations

Question is to find no of combinations of x,y,z,w

Choosing only 1 letter - 4C1 ways = 4
Choosing only 2 letter - 4C2 ways = 6
Choosing only 3 letter - 4C3 ways = 4
Choosing only 4 letter - 4C4 ways = 1

Total possible combinations = 4+6+4+1 = 15
