In terms of radicals, all options are correct.
Radicals only serve for you to easily remember the characters really.

For example:
二+人=天。 → "There are two people high in the sky".
一+大=天。 → "There is only one sky, and it's big".

And so on.

What can you say about Option 4?

Option 4 is too much radicals actually.
You can use radicals as building blocks, you can't merge them.

Don't you think that Option 4 is not quite correct? Radical èr 'two' is missing. When we analyze the Chinese character tiān ‘sky’ we can't do without èr 'two'. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me, friend! ;)

      Hi everyone!
      I want to talk you about Parlam, a website where you can fins online transaltion jobs.
      Parlam is a market place for translators and for  the person who need them, a place to find the others. 
      This model of the marketplace connect both parties and offers several advantages. From the perspective of the complainant, he will be able to have native translators in several languages, including minority ones, receiving a professional service. For the translator, this business model allows you to earn peace of mind because it ensures the collection and fairer margins, thanks to the elimination of intermediaries.
      Parlam was born seven years ago in Barcelona with a platform that helps large companies manage large volumes of translations in multiple languages. In addition to great savings, Parlam allows you to manage 1,000 simultaneous translations in 10 languages, with many translators and proofreaders, without having to send a single file or email. All automated through its platform.
