    S = Possible number of structures

    S = 1*[2C1+2C2]*[3C2+3C3]*[4C2+4C3+4C4]

    S = 1*[2+1]*[3+1]*[6+4+1]

    S = 1*3*4*11 = 132

    Three possibilities: B, C, BC;

    Four possibilities: DE, DF, EF, DEF;

    Eleven possibilities: GH, GJ, GK, HJ, HK, JK, GHJ, GHK, GJK, HJK, GHJK.

    3 x 4 x 11 = 132.

    A ==> 1

    B or C or (B AND C) ==> 3 choices

    DE or DF or EF or (D AND E AND F) = 4 choices

    GH or GJ or GK or HJ or HK or JK or (Not G) or (Not H) or (Not J) or (not K) or (GHJK) = 11

    so 1 * 3 * 4 * 11 = 132
