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! ;)

      The most difficult part of Chinese as a studying goal - pronunciation! Chinese counts 4 different tones! If you pronounce one of them inccorect you will change the meaning of the word dramatically!
      That’s why JTC offers you a speech recognition tuner which allows you to check your pronunciation skills not only during the lesson but also in our interactive vocabulary and unique pinyin table which allows you to practice every existing syllable in Chinese using all 4 tones!
      Besides pronunciation JTC offers you interactive lessons, learning cartoons, games for words learning and a glimpse of a Chinese culture!
      After each successful finished lesson student can get a part of a story with our JTC guide - Sun Wu Kong!
      There are a lot of extra features you can find in JTC to  learn Chinese and China culture in easy and efficient way!

      I like to learn new languages. However, for traditional classes and tutorials, they are costly and boring, and I lack of opportunities to practice. For internet learning, it lacks of motivation which keeps me learning the new language. Makes me so headache~~~
      Recently used an app called FYLP and it helps me find a language partner.
      As I want to learn Japanese, I have been matched with a Japanese language partner, and we keep chatting using the app. At first, we use English to chat. As we are more familiar with each other, as she keeps teaching me new words and structures, we start using more and more Japanese to communicate. We always share our daily life with each other.  I can learn Japanese in a funny and effective way through this app as Japanese immerses in our communication. I do not need to memorize hardly.
      I can know more about Japanese culture too.
      And I can make more foreign friends through this app too~~~
