For the third question, we come to know from the passage that the third and the highest level of the Eiffel Tower sits 276 meters above the ground and offers a panoramic view of Paris. So, the answer is 276 meters. Here, the top level’s upper platform refers to the third level of the tower. 

For the fourth question, it is mentioned in the passage that the first level of the Eiffel Tower offers a gallery, a restaurant, and a souvenir kiosk. So, the answer is the First level.
