Why would the black Queen not take the whit Queen after moves 1 or 2 There is nothing covering the white Queen and thus a strait take not a trade? Veary confused by this puzzle.

You have got to be kidding me!

Mission : decoy.

Great puzzle for Deflection.  with Back Rank mate looming all white wants to do is remove either the Queen or C Rooks influence over the e Rooks light square that both whites Rooks are pointing at.  Very Nice.
