Here is another chess problems from Martin Gardner:

[1] Both king's knights missing and black's queen's pawn forward 2 spaces.

[2] All four knights missing and black's queen's pawn forward 2 spaces.

Can you solve any of these?

The King is never actually taken, since checkmate ends the game immediately before the capture of the King. However, a Pawn can give checkmate, that is, a Pawn can be the piece that would capture the King if the game were not ended by checkmate.
