    meaning of 'come through' in this sentence

    Hello People! I was just looking up the different meanings of come through, like
    1. To survive a difficult situation
    2. To receive a message, phone call, a signal, an official document...etc
    3. to move from one room to another (as in "come through to the sitting room, there's more room in there". Please correct me if I'm wrong.)
    4. To come through with something that you promised to do or something that's expected from you.
    And so on....

    I came across this sentence, it was one of the example sentences.
    "Part of it comes through design, by assembling the right mix of players, and part of it comes through luck."
    Firstly, i don't understand what "come through" means in the sentence. Secondly, i couldn't figure out its possible meaning in this context, by looking at the different meanings of the phrasal verb. Please help me with it. Thanks a lot!

    Re: meaning of 'come through' in this sentence

    It's not an example of the phrasal verb.
    "It comes [through design]/[via design]/[by means of design]". It doesn't [come through] design.

    Thanks a lot. Since it is an example sentence, the meaning wasn't very clear from the context. Thanks for clearing up my doubts!
