    Very simple here...assuming all things are equal in position and material...

    1) 3 minors for Queen

    2) 2 minors for Rook(assume not but situationally? ie active rook for

    Bad bishop and knight, etc)

    3) break a staunch pawn chain w knight or bad bishop for a pawn or 2

    4) 3 minors for a queen

    5) 2 rooks for queen

    6) 2 bishops for 2 knights or vise versa

    Really it depends completely on the position. But will try and answer.

    1. Really depends how good the pieces are and how many targets/open lines the queen has.

    2. Would take the 2 pieces in the opening/middlegame, less likely to in an endgame.

    3. If there's an extra attack, the pawns are passed, or it creates some sort of weakness. Otherwise no. I think people are too quick to do this in general.

    5. 2 rooks are probably better if they both have open lines and the queen doesn't have targets.

    6. I would trade 2 knights for 2 bishops, not vice versa in most positions.
