W^{4 }+ X^{3 }+ Y^{2 }+ Z ≤ 4

We can isolate the terms as W^{4 }+ Y^{2}+ X^{3} + Z ≤ 4

From here we can see that the equalities [2] and [3] together make up [1]

From inequation [2],

Z can be 1 or 2 and X can be 0 or 1

W | X | Y | Z |

- | 1 | - | 1 |

- | 0 | - | 2 |

From inequation [3],

Y can only be -1 as Y is negative and thus cannot be 0 or lesser than -1 or the inequality wouldn't be satisfied. W can be -1 or 1 and

W | X | Y | Z |

-1 | 1 | -1 | 1 |

-1 | 0 | -1 | 2 |

1 | 1 | -1 | 1 |

1 | 0 | -1 | 2 |

So we are left with,

W | X | Y | Z |

±1 | 0 | -1 | 2 |

From here we can calculate the value of W

Choice C is the correct answer.
