yes, if long time included at least one trip of longer than 180 days in the last 4 years and one day, her N400 will be denied.

You haven't given us many facts to go on.

One big problem I see is that "she has been out of country for long time" ... if any trip was for more than 180 days ... she has problems.

Depends on whether those trips disqualify her.

The Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit recently stated: "The Immigration and Nationality Act is a bit of a beast. It is not known for being warm or cuddly; words like "intricate" and "Byzantine" come more readily to mind. Nor is it known for being easy to understand; we have often re-marked on its fiendish complexity."

You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
