A supplement to my comment, first, if your hand is notbalanced, be sure that the opponents’ handis also unbalanced.

Secondly, how does East-West reach to 7NT:

East opens onediamond. East’s hand is too strong forpreemptive.

South bids four clubs,West bids Double North – Pass, East 4 diamonds and West bids 7NT.

More like 5 6 here if I am responder playing with a new player, though not surprised to see some tables go 5 7 given that six card suit w AK and those entries with the hope that the leader dont have the ace and the suit be good.

But isn't a key point that 7NT doesn't make?

You're of course right if North attacks with a club. Due lack of entries to East's hand.
All different lead E-W make the 7NT contract.
But, this is the only lead, a club, that North must lead since South bid 4

I honestly think anything other than a 5 opening bid is resulting. You have a good 9-card suit and the minority of the points. It's also descriptive. 3 is obviously completely absurd, as is 2 while 1 is 'only' wrong.
