A Supersymmetric Yang Mills theory has 8 bosonic and 8 fermionic components. Since SUSY YM Theory is described via the Vector Superfield,

$$V=C(x)+i\theta\chi(x)-i\bar{\theta}\bar{\chi}(x) \dots.$$

If I expand my fields to super-forms, I am unable to understand how does an unconstrained one-form field contain 112 components (most of them are unphysical)?

The one form field is defined as,

$$A_{M}=A_adx^a+A_{\alpha}d\theta^{\alpha}+A_{\dot{\alpha}}d\bar{\theta}^{\dot{\alpha}}$$

I am unable to get my counting right.
