Here is a way of doing it. You check to see which ones meet the criteria and then delete them.

```              meet.crit
[1,] 2 2 2 2         1
[2,] 2 2 1 2         1
[3,] 2 2 1 1         1
[4,] 2 2 0 2         1
[5,] 2 2 0 1         1
[6,] 2 2 0 0         0
[7,] 1 2 2 2         1
[8,] 1 2 1 2         1
[9,] 1 2 1 1         1
[10,] 1 2 0 2         1
[11,] 1 2 0 1         1
[12,] 1 2 0 0         0
[13,] 1 1 2 2         1
[14,] 1 1 1 2         1
[15,] 1 1 1 1         0
[16,] 1 1 0 2         1
[17,] 1 1 0 1         0
[18,] 1 1 0 0         0
```

> SS[!meet.crit,] # remove them

[,1] [,2] [,3] [,4]

```[1,]    2    2    0    0
[2,]    1    2    0    0
[3,]    1    1    1    1
[4,]    1    1    0    1
[5,]    1    1    0    0
```
