mistake in the answer key released by SIERT Udaipur

The answer given for Question No.56 in the SAT paper by SIERT is wrong. They have given the answer as option (1), it should be option (2)
The question was -
"Federalism' means more than one level of Govts. in a country; How many levels of Govt. are there in our country -
(1) Two                      (2) Three                    (3) Four                      (4) Five

in Chapter no.1- The Indian Constitution of class VIII, NCERT book, page no.11 discusses about the Key features of the Indian Constitution. The first feature given is Federalism - This refers to the existence of more than one level of government in the country. In India, we have governments at the state level and the centre. Panchayati Raj is the third tier of government and you have read about this in your class VI book.
Chapter no. 2 of class X NCERT book, Federalism, Page no 16 says - The Constitution originally provided for a two-tier system of government, the Union Government or what we call the Central Government, representing the Union of India and the State governments. Later, a third tier of federalism was added in the form of Panchayats and Municipalities.
The above two quotes clearly proves that the answer of Question no.56 should be option (2) rather then option (1) as been claimed by SIERT, Rajasthan.

Even we studied for NTSE from NCERT books and we studied the same thing from NCERT SST book for grade 8 and in the very 1st chapter it is given that our Government has Three levels,
i.e. The Central Govt., The State govt. and the Panchayati Raj system.
