If repetition is not allowed

_       _      _   (Lenght 3$: 4*3*2 = 24$ ways)

_      _   (Length $2: 4*3=12$ ways)

_  (Length $1: 4$ ways)

(Length $0: 1$ way)

So, $24+12+4+1 = 41$

$\underline{\hspace{0.5cm}} \ \underline{\hspace{0.5cm}} \   \underline{\hspace{0.5cm}}  $ 4 options to fill each blank = $4^3 = 64$

$\underline{\hspace{0.5cm}} \ \underline{\hspace{0.5cm}} $ $ =4^2 = 16$

$\underline{\hspace{0.5cm}}   = 4^1 = 4$

$1$

$64 + 16 + 4 + 1 = 85$
