No-brainers

Today, something less difficult. Referring to chess problems, the expression "no-brainer" has been introduced by Tim Krabbé. You may have a look at entries #265 and #267 in his Open Chess Diary. Here are two more of that category:

  1Knud Hannemann  
Skakbladet 06/1942
[KBk5/P1P5/p1P5/Pp5p/RP4B1/P7/6P1/8]
  #7(11+4)  

  2A. Lundgren  
Skakbladet 05/1942
[KBk5/P1P1p3/2p1P3/1pP5/1Pp5/1PP5/8/8]
  #7(9+5)  

No need to give solutions for non-brainers, right? Solving such puzzles is no work at all – the more it is composing them!
