#### Games And Tournament

Direction: In a knockout tournament 64 players participated. These 64 players are seeded from 1 to 64 with seed 1 being the top seed and seed 64 being the bottom seed. The tournament is conducted in different stages.
In stage 1 seed 1 played with seed 64 and that match is named as match 1 of stage 1, seed 2 played with seed 63 and that match is named as match 2 of stage 1, and so on.
In stage 2, winner of match 1 and match 32 of stage 1 played against each other and that match is named as Match 1 of stage 2, then winner of match 2 and match 31 of stage 1 played against each other and that match is named as Match 2 of stage 2. And so on
The same procedure is followed in further stages. Now answer the following questions.

1. 1
2. 2
3. 3
4. None of these
