Q to g8 or {DW4p4pDW} a8 would clear the way; but we then {WDp)WDWD} observe that, once the Black Q moves, {DWDWDWDW} the S at b5 can no longer attack. We vllllllllV Mate in two need not trouble about Q×P because of the double check by S at g4 (together with the R at h4). Then we note one of the moves of the Black Q which gives this problem distinction. When the Q goes to e4 it gets between the Black P at e5 and the R at e3 which defends it, so that S×P mates (the Q being pinned and interfering with the effective range of the Black R at e3).
