Bad training problem(s)

Well, you won a hanging piece. It's not like there's a checkmate to play when white's doing a good job defending.

This is not an uncommon puzzle actually. I saw many of those on chess.com. Bear in mind it's not only a hanging piece problem which would even be okay for beginner puzzles — another thing is some people may think there's a checkmate or something here, which is obviously not there.

I suppose there must be something in my brain that makes this one appallingly easy for me. (Don't worry, I do mind-numbingly numb stuff on most of of the others...) But I literally can't even see any other move when I look at this position with a mind to judge which move to play.

By the way, is there a way to see success/failure rates for the puzzles?
