How many alternatives does a 14-bit ADC have


I am a bit confused what alternatives are or how to find out how many are in an ADC. The book I have wasn't much help and I need to find this out for a project. Does anyone know the answer or how to find out? thank you.

The answer has nothing at all to do with ADCs, but is simple binary.

The value given by the ADC is 14-bits wide, so therefore it has a possible \$2^{14}\$ combinations, or 16384.
