Correct Option: 1  

15th and 16th centuries, West Africa
At its peak the empire stretched from the Atlantic Ocean (modern Senegal and Gambia) to what is now Northwest Nigeria and central Niger. It had strong trading, political and cultural ties with the rest of the Muslim world, and encouraged the immigration of scholars and skilled workers.
