    Now, see if you can find another after I made my correction.

    This problem featured 3 different change mates.

    A look at the diagram reveals that Black is in zugzwang. If it is Black to move the set mates are the following: 

    a. ...Kd3 1. Qxh7#

    b. ...d3 1. Rc4#

    c. ...e2 1. Nf2#

    Plus other mates: (...Bg6 1. Bxg6 and ...Bf5 1. Qxf5#)

    After the waiting 1. Rf2!!, the changemate I referred to were:

    a. 1...Kd3 2. Nc5# (instead of Qxh7#)

    b. 1...d3 2. Qc4# (instead of Rc4#)

    c. 1...e2 2. Qf3#  (instead of Nf2#)
