Bent's underpromotions

Time flies and I don't recall anymore how it happened. Anyway, roughly at the same time I looked into Rusinek's compositions (see here and here), I also learnt that the English problemist Charles Michael Bent composed a lot of endgame studies featuring underpromotions. Quite interesting, I thought. So, that's the subject for today.

Next, a rather rare example of the underpromotion to a bishop.

Of course, there is also the promotion to a knight.
