If you are studying this topic, this question is almost too elementary.

number of breads: 5

meats : 6 (what is pulled poke)

veggies : 6

cheese: 6

Source ? : 6

number of possible sandwiches

= 5x6x6x6x6 = 6480

Now the question becomes more interesting if you assume that he may or may not choose any or part of the listing
