Find all the distinct cyclic subgroup of A4

what is distinct cyclic subgroup? Does it mean A4 = {1,2,3,4} ?

to find all of the subgroup, should it be: (1,2,3,4) , (2,1,3,4) , ( 1,2,4,3) etc ... or it should be (1,2) , (1,3), (1,4) ???

since you said "then a cyclic subgroup of http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...0eee583a-1.gif would be a subgroup that is generated by one element." Would that mean the answer is simply {(1), (2), (3), (4)} there are 4 distinct cyclic subgroups?
