Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Prize two is better:

Day 1= $1

Day 2=1x2=$2

Day 3= 2x2=$4

Day 4= 4x2=$8

Day 5= 8x2=$16

Day 6=16x2=32

If you add 1+2+4+8+16+32=$63

Thus, prize two is better because you get an extra $3

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
