It is quaternary structure because has multipolypeptide chain which is homotypic shaving four polypeptide chains which are similar.

Quaternary structure is where protein contains more than one polypeptide chain each called a unit. So when they are arranged into subunits and the nature of their contact we have an example of haemoglobin.
