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 = 322−312 = (32+31) (32-31) = 63 × 1 = 63.
