    3 down: Bxc5?

    4 down: He doesn't have to take the bishop first and what about after kxc3?

    I may be missing something painstakingly obvious here, but for the fourth one down surely the pawn should be promoted to a queen rather than a bishop? Then you have an immediate checkmate. What can a bishop do that a queen can'r?

    first one is good

    Manchero

    amateur1024, if he queens, there would be a stalemate...the king can't move and the knight can't move as it would be blocking check from the new queen

    Harry, Bxc5 is better but only delays the mate.

    Qxc5 would delay it longest

    number 2 has several mating patterns.  We agree through the third move but then:

    4 Bb5 Kb8

    5 Ba6 Ka8

    6Bb7+ Kb8

    7 Nc6 or d7 mate lops one move off and

    4Kc7 Ka7

    5Bc8 Ka8

    6Bb7+ Ka7

    7Nc6 mate is another pattern 1 move shorter.  Other 7s might exist.  If you can do better (ie 6), I will admit you are my superior.  Typos above do not count.
