Solutions for Quantum Logic Chess Problems

These are terrific problems - full of concepts, tactics and humour.

Here's the solution to {G}, to show the general idea.

{G}
(a) 1. Qg4+ f5 2. gf6e.p.#
(b) In the position after the first two moves, we can no longer be sure that the e.p. is legal. So there is no #1, and instead the following #2: 1. Qc4+ d5 2. cd6e.p.#
(c) Again, in the position after the first two moves, we have "forgotten" whether e.p. is legal. So the #1 is gone. But another #2 beckons: 1. Qe2 (returning to the start square) then 1...d/f4 2. Qc/g4#.

I haven't got time to type in the rest of the solutions now. But I would welcome any solutions that anyone else wishes to provide. Come on chaps!
