    Almost every move white can make leads to mate, so I guess I was a bit harsh. Counting them all is tedious, though.

    38 moves:

    7 = pawns: a8=Q; a8=B; hxg8=Q; hxg8=B; d8=Q; d8=R; e4

    8 = knight moves: Nf6; Nc7 and Nb4; Nb2; Nc1; Ne1; Nf2; Nf4
    (not Nc5 because it allows Kc6)

    6= rook moves: all 6 squares on c-file other than Rc6 because that allows Kxc6; none for the other rook

    13 = bishop moves: none for the white squared; all 13 squares for the other

    4 = queen moves: Qf7; Qe6; Qf3; Qe4

    0= king moves

    I was referring to the question being ambiguous [ spelt wrong ]

    How many moves in one = one

    The real answer takes too much time and patience which are not vitues of mine

    Your answer appears to be correct.
