A quasar is an astronomical source of electromagnetic energy,
including light, which shows a very high redshift. For more:

3C405, which is also known as Cygnus A, was the first discovered
hyper-active galaxy. So, it is not a quasar.

The nearest quasar is 780 million, the furthest quasar is 13 billion
light years away from here.

First discovered quasar is 3c273 (it discovered in 1963). 3C 273 is a
quasar located in the constellation Virgo. For more information you
