Take & Make: Every capture ("take") must be complemented by a further step ("make": not a capture) by the capturing piece, using the movement of the captured unit, otherwise the capture is illegal. Pawns may not end up on their own first rank. Captures on the promotion rank lead to promotions only if the pawn is still on the promotion rank after the "make" part of the move. Promotions at the end of the "make" element are normal.

in the second solution 2.Kxe7 we cant capture in orthodox chess . it is allowed in Take & Make ?? ( even though , after capture it is moved to b4 .at the time of Capturing , king went under Check )

In Take & Make is important the arrival square after "Make" movement, so the move 2.Kxe7 is possible and not selfcheck, because the bK finishing its move on b4.
