  1. a) no condition: 7x7x7x7 = 7^4 = 2401

    b) no repeats: 7x6x5x4 = 840

    c) begin with A, can I repeat the others ?
    I will assume I can:
    1x7x7x7 = 343

    d) same as c)
    7x7x7x1 = 343

    e) 2nd letter is a vowel
    7x2x7x7 = 686

    In c), d) and e) I assumed that letters can be repeated, you did not say otherwise.
    If they cannot be repeated , it is easy to change the calculations
