I think the right solution is: 1. f2-f4 and 2.f4-f5#. The other solution is not actually mate in 2 if black moves 1... RxC2.

Have another look... 2. f5 lets in gxf5.   And Rxc2 doesn't prevent the mate:  white doesnt have to take the rook.   As you do more of these you will find that 1/ most alternative solutions have been  answered before and 2/ given solutions are very very rarely wrong .  Good luck and enjoy.
