    If the puzzle is about mate in 2 without any qualifications (which is the case in point, unless I am missing something), it should allow other ways of checkmating in 2.

    Nice puzzle, I stared at my Pawn, then my Queen, then my King, then the two pawns in front of the King. I wondered whether I could get stalemated. Then I looked at the Queening square and thought rook? still stalemate .. bishop? .. no checkmate .. Knight! .. now since you know my fascinating thought process, you can publish it and become a Cognitive Psychologist.

    Ok, why not KxP, then only move left is K-b8 and P-d8 promoting to Q is also mate in the same number for moves for white?

    It's good. At first I wanted to promote to a queen but that way lies stalemate. Ha!

    Couldn't someone in theory pull the queen out of the way for the first move to avoid a stalemate, then on the next move promote the pawn, and then go for  a back rank mate.

    Why not Q-b5 
    --> Black king has to go to a8
    Promoto to queen => Checkmate...
    Right?!

    This was a good one. Took me a minute to see that the pawn to knight promotion would end it.

    Well, I tried a mate in 3 combo so I guess that means I missed it. However, I got it on the next try.
