a little hard
The first move's easy, because it's the only one that attacks the Queen, and the title is, after all, "Can you trap the Queen?". The second move requires more calculation.
2. Bxf6 Bxd1 (-/+) 2.Qb1 Qxg5 (-/+)
2.Qc1 Qxd4 (=/+)
2.Qxf3 Qxg5 3.Qxb7 Qd5 4.Be4 Qxe4 (+/-), but 2.Qxf3 Qxf3! 3.gxf3(=)
2.Qd2 Qxd4? 3.Bb5+ (+/-), but 2.Qd2 Bxg2! 3.Bxf6 Bxh1 (+/=)
An interesting point is, to easily see Qd2 as better than Qxf3, you must evaluate a Queen as worth more than a Rook + Knight + Pawn. Euwe & Kramer would disagree.
