Hi,
 
The question you specified has correct options. 
Correct answer is 1, which is provided in the option.
 
Here is alternate solution:

smallest 5-digit number = 10,000

greatest 4-digit number = 9999

Now,

smallest 5-digit number - greatest 4-digit number

= 10,000 - 9999

= 1

So, smallest 5-digit number exceeds the greatest 4-digit number by 1.
