    (a) 1. …Qg5 2.Qc3 or e5 Qxe7 and Black will win.
    (b) 1. …Qg5 2. Qb4 Qxe7 and Black will win. ( If White plays 3.Qxe7, then 3. …Rxe1#. )
    (c) 1. …Qg5 2.Qxg5 Rxe1#
    (d) 1. …Qg5 2.Rxa7 Qxa5 and Black will surely win. ( If White plays 3.Rxa5, then 3. …Rxe1#. )
    (e) 1. …Qg5 2.Re5 Qxe5 and Black will win. ( If White plays 3.Qxe5, then 3. …Rxe1#. )

    what about
    2.Rec7 Qa1 ?

    1. ….. Qg5 seems to win material by a double attack on Qa5 and Re7, as the White queen cannot abandon the pinned knight on e1. If 2. Qb4, Qxe7 and White cannot recapture. If 2. Rxa7, Qxa5 removes the guard of the knight. And 2. Qxg5 Rxe1# is unpleasant for White, too.
