Yes, why wouldn't queen take queen?   Makes no sense.  These puzzles should be screened better.

Black isn't forced 1..Qxa3, the king still can move and prolong mate.  For that matter, your second move 2. Bxa3 is unnecessary.  Black taking the white queen at a3 is wrong for the same reason that taking the white queen when it moved to b4 is wrong.  It allows mate the next move.
