Here is a helpful clue, in the form of a chess puzzle, to help you answer the question. I hope it helps.
It's been a few days, so I wanted to some hints in case anyone wants them.
"Mate in two or three" refers to two different sequences of moves, one leading to checkmate in two moves, the other to checkmate in three moves.
The sequences of moves are helpmates, meaning black and white work together to make the checkmate possible.
In the "mate in two" sequence, white gets checkmated in two moves. In the "mate in three" sequence, black gets checkmated in three moves.
The "mate in two" sequence encodes the answer to the first question. The "mate in three" sequence encodes the answer to the second question.
