    because A's the one you'd expect to be easy to mate quickly 😉

    I think I see mate for A and B, but C looks like it would take too long.

    What do you mean it is going to be "A". Isn't one of the boards already an answer? Or are these games in progress? I don't get it...

    I mean when he reveals the answer, he's going to say A.

    It's like when someone asks you out of the blue "who invented the light bulb?" the answer most people give is ".....it's not going to be Edison."

    They are all possible in under 8 moves if black moves poorly

    As some of you have correctly surmised, the answer is C - nicely done.
