How are people still getting it wrong 3 months after the answer was given?

perhaps they don't want to go looking for the answer before attacking it themselves?

You are correct

DalaiLuke.They want to check if their answer is correct without looking first on the solution.

Anyway,

Scottrfhad solved this problem 3 months ago.If this problem is new to you. Or if you've first encounter this problem, then you are free to solve without looking on the answer.

If 1.Qxd2? then bxc4!!

Hello!

I saw that Re1 was a solution, but what about Re5+ ?

If the king takes on c4, you have Qc2#

if the knight takes on e5, you have Nxf4#

I don't see anything else black can do

Edit: Oops, after Re5+ Kc4 Qc2 you have Kd4 because the rook on e5 now blocks the bishop on h8
