    Nope, the correct answer is actually c)

    @Bolan_Yongshi

     

    Learn your tactics!

    Try to mate from this position then.

     

    That's impossible because both bishops are in the same color. 

     


    just like i said, the answer is b.

    chessneon,  the quention asked is "Is it possible to mate with 2 bishops + king against the lone king of the opponent?"

    In general one might think of the opposite coloured bishop.  However, this seems to be like a trick question as it did not state whether it is opposite colour bishop or not.  Anyway, lets say it is opposite colour bishop, it still can't be mated ALWAYS.  Just see comments no. 27 & 30 by manudude02 & vill0236. 

    The answer (b) is Yes, always.  The KEY words always.  

    Therefore your answer (b) is a wrong one no matter what!

    is it possible to acheive this position?  white has 2 dark sq. bishops, 1 on c5 and 1 on d6 with white king on c6 and black king on a8?
