The missing piece (chess) (Posted on 2008-06-12) Difficulty: 3 of 5
What is the missing piece (marked "?") in this configuration of a normal chess game?

BLACK

WHITE
Notice that the Black King is in check by the White Rook.

Now, even if the rook on the dark square got there by being a pawn capturing a black piece, as well as discovering check on the black king, I don't see how that relates to the identity of the space marked with the question mark.
