I will rephrase the problem, since some folks seem to be having a hard time
You want a list of four elements. The first element comes from list1, the
second from list2, .... And there should be no duplicates in the solution.
To start you off, here is a selection function, which computes all such
lists, but does not remove duplicates.
select :: [[a]] -> [[a]]
select  = []
select (xs:xss) = [ x:rest | y <- xs; rest <- select xss ]
Filtering out the duplicate-free lists should not be a problem.
Note: this is not an efficient solution, it is just to get you started.
Making it efficient will require understanding and modifying the above
select function, which ought to be an educational experience :-)
