Q1: Option (C)

Q2: Option (D)

Q3: Option (C)

Q4: Option (C)

Q1

P1 is in the same column as Queen

P2 is in the same diagonal as Queen

P3 is not in the same diagonal, column or row of the queen

P4 is in the same row as queen

P5 is diagonal to queen

So, acc to the question, queen can attack P1, P2, P4 and P5

Q2 When Queen is at f8

The Queen can attack P6 (same row), P3 (Same diagonal). So, 2

When Queen is at a7

The Queen can attack P2 (Same column), P4 (Same row). So, 2

When Queen is at c1

The Queen can attack P1 (Same row), P2 (Same Diagonal). So, 2

When Queen is at d3

Here, the queen can attack P2 (Same row), P4 (Same Column), P5 (Same Diagonal). So, 3

Option (D) is the right answer.

Q3 Queen cannot be placed in Columns A, B, D, and H. From the remaining columns, it has to be assessed. For e.g. COLUMN C:-> If Queen is placed in c2, it will attack h7. Further, other positions in the column c can be ruled out. Similarly, analyzing other squares, the result is as follows:

Queen can be placed in e2, f2, g2, g5 (such that the pieces on board are NOT under attack). So, there are a total of 4 such squares for the Queen.

Q4 Given that Queen is at d5. The squares which will be under attack are as indicated below. These squares are either lying in the diagonal, or in the row or in the column. The remaining squares that are safe have been kept empty. A total of 36 such squares are safe (by counting).
