    It's a table that has columns, not a database. Moreover the design seems odd and I'm pretty sure it's not normalized.

    Also, you should not used reserved words (such a "name") or non alpha-numeric characters (such as a space: "Very good") for naming objects (tables, columns, indexes, etc.) in an Access database.

    Anyway, here's a solution. As you did not specified the name of the table, it's "Table1" in my example:
    SELECT [name], 
           Abs(SGood) + Abs(SVerygood) + Abs(SPoor) AS CountYes, 
           (CTotal * 3) + SGood + SVerygood + SPoor AS CountNo
    FROM (
           SELECT Table1.[name], 
                  Sum(Table1.Good) AS SGood, 
                  Sum(Table1.[Very good]) AS SVerygood, 
                  Sum(Table1.Poor) AS SPoor, 
                  Count (*) AS CTotal
           FROM Table1
           GROUP BY Table1.[name]
    You can add:
     WHERE [name] = 'satpal'
    before the final semicolon if you want the result for only one value of [name].
    Have a nice day!

    ypu coudl do this with an IIF
    SELECT class,
    COUNT(IIF(Q1=TRUE,1,0) as Q1Yes,
    COUNT(IIF(Q2=TRUE,1,0) as Q2Yes,
    COUNT(IIF(Q3=TRUE,1,0) as Q3Yes,
    COUNT(IIF(Q4=TRUE,1,0) as Q4Yes,
    COUNT(Q1) as NoRepsonses
    FROM mytable
    GROUP BY class
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
