How to display last record of WordPress, except for the extreme?

Hi. WordPress template bring extreme record using: $query = new WP_Query( 'showposts=1' );
In the next block I'm doing the same, only change the number of displayed news: $query = new WP_Query( 'showposts=3' );
The problem is that this second block is repeated the news of the first block.

Question: how to remove from the second unit of the last recording so it is not repeated in two blocks?

Thank you.

UPD. Solution:
$query = new WP_Query( array( 'posts_per_page' => 3, 'offset' => 1 ) );

The idea of it.

$query = new WP_Query(['showposts' => 3, 'offset' => 1]);
Yes, thank you. The link was useful.
But your method didn't work. But it worked:
$query = new WP_Query( array( 'posts_per_page' => 3, 'offset' => 1 ) ); - Allie.Kerluke64 commented on September 26th 19 at 06:57
Yes, I saw that option, but I thought that showposts is alias. - yoshiko_Schowalter36 commented on September 26th 19 at 07:00
