Solution

The correct option is B

63


Number of trees = 1024.

Since number of rows = number of columns, the trees form a  perfect square.

Therefore number of rows/columns = square root of 1024 (number of trees).
1024= 2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2=32

Therefore, the initial number of rows/columns = 32.

After removing 1 row and one column, number of rows/columns = 32-1 = 31.
 Remaining trees = 312.
Therefore, number of trees removed = 322312 = (32+31) (32-31) = 63 × 1 = 63.
