5+3/4+4/6+2/4+4.

From the same square in **b**, **c**, and **d**, take a piece.
Place these pieces in diagram **a** (at least one of them has to
be placed on c4). Now take 3 pieces from **a**, and place these pieces
on the same square in **b**, **c** and **d**, in such a way
that no promoted pieces are in those diagrams. What symbolism can you
see on the 4 boards? Now play a h#1 on board **a**, and in the other
3 boards, take a piece and place it on another square, so that black
is mated. The piece has to be taken from and placed on the same square
in each 3 diagrams. What symbolism can you see now?
