I would say 1

as we are adding, we can have 3 negative numbers but if the sum of those three is less than the amount of the only one that is positive, then the sum of a+b+c+d would be positive

I also think it is 1. as explained above there could be 3 -ve and 1 +ve, Since 1 is the minimum value > 0. So answer is 1
