quarter note = 1 beat ; eighth note = 1/2 beat

so...

1/4 note
+
another 1/4 note
= 2 beats

+
two 1/8 notes
= 3 beats

+
another two 1/8 notes
= 4 beats


= 1 measure of 4/4 time

The above looks correct to me: 2 quarter notes followed by 4 eighth notes; 1 2 3 + 4 + = 1 bar of 4/4 time.
True, I totally overlooked it, sorry for the faulty input.
