You really need to provide more information. The error message without the command that generated it and the structure of the data sets you are using is a bare minimum. A reproducible example is often necessary to debug code such as this.
You can simplify your code substantially with something like this
> cols <- c("H1", "H2", "H3", "H8")
> RS <- rowSums(kdata[, cols])
> kdata$target <- ifelse(RS == length(cols), "all-true",
+ ifelse(RS == 0, "all-false", "other"))

Got past the syntax error,now I got new error below
Error in match.fun(FUN) : c("'ifelse((kmeans.data$HBV51OpenDmd & kmeans.data$HBV52OpenDmd & ' is not a function, character or symbol", "' kmeans.data$HBV53OpenDmd & kmeans.data$HBV8OpenDmd) == 1, ' is not a function, character or symbol", "' \"all-true\", (ifelse((kmeans.data$HBV51OpenDmd == 0 & kmeans.data$HBV52OpenDmd == ' is not a function, character or symbol", "' 0 & kmeans.data$HBV53OpenDmd == 0 & kmeans.data$HBV8OpenDmd == ' is not a function, character or symbol", "' 0), \"all-false\", \"other\")))' is not a function, character or symbol" )

I would like to process each row of data frame having 8 columns of which I am interested in 4 columns for my analysis.I tried using apply function but I get syntax error,although I checked for missing syntaxes ,couldn't figure out the mistake.Can you also suggest me more efficient way to perform same action.
# creating target column from result
kdata$target <- apply(kdata,1,ifelse((kdata$H1 & kdata$H2 & kdata$H3 &
kdata$H8) == 1,"all-true",(ifelse(kdata$H1== 0 &
kdata$H2 == 0 &
kdata$H3 == 0 &
kdata$H8 == 0) ,
