Alena, Yes, 1.fxg3 is the right move. Since the numbering is a bit odd in the reply, I will just assume the rest is correct.

Here is the solution for the second puzzle.

1.fxg3 exd4

- bxc7 Kb7
- c6+ Kxc7
- exd4 Kxc6
- gxf4 Kd7
- Kg2 Ke6
- Kg3 Kf5
- Kf3 d5
- Kg3 Ke4
- Kg4 Kxd4
- f5 Kc5
- f6 Kd6
- Kg5 Ke6
- Kg6 Kd6
- Kg7 d4
- f7 Kd5
- f8=Q

It's a win.

As I wrote, the second puzzle has a win for white, but 1.bxc7 leads only to a draw.

Here is the solution for the fourth puzzle. At last I have found a beautiful solution.

- g8=N+ Nxg8
- c7 Rg7+
- Kh3 Rh7+
- Kg2 Kd7
- Rxf7+ Rxf7
- e6+ Kxe6
- c8=Q+ Kf6

It's a draw.

Here is the solution for the second puzzle.

I can't find a win. I got only a draw.

- bxc7 Kb7
- fxg3 dxc5
- dxc5 fxg3
- Kg2 Kxc7
- Kxg3 Kc6
