Q1[k, 1] doesn't return anything useful since Q1 is not a function and
[k,1] is the form of an argument to a function.


For a part, you should be using Q1[[k,1]] rather than Q1[k,1].


Q1 = Array[q, {96, 96}];


With[{
  k = RandomInteger[{1, 96}],
  n = RandomInteger[{1, 96}]},
 Part[Q1[[k]], n] === Q1[[k]][[n]] === Q1[[k, n]]
 ]


True


See documentation for Part.
