Answer:

118 or 94 depending on how you look at it.

Explanation:

The first 94 elements are naturally occurring, and the elements from 95 to 118 are man made in laboratories.

In general, if you have a substance, (and it is not in a laboratory) then it is made of 94 possible elements. However, special man-made substances could, in theory, contain the other elements for a while.
