Interesting observation. In one of the Mastery quizes it indicates mate in 4 moves. I am seeing a mate in two movew.

Here is the layout. WR-A4, WR-B1, WK-C2, BK-H5
(I don't know this notation stuff yet WR is White Rook and WK is White king in "my" notation)

To get mate in 2 - move WR-B1 to G1
Black is forced to move the king to H6
Move WR-A4 to H4 - checkmate...
