    4

    Step-by-step explanation:

    There are 4 board members and 3 committee members. You can solve this using combinations:

    4C3 = 4! / (3! (4-3) !) = 4! / (3!1!) = 4

    You can also solve this by recognizing that since there is one fewer committee spot than there are board members, there will be one possible committee excluding each of the 4 board members.
