ii) two moves?

iii) three moves?

However, in the second move, you have two different starting points, but they don't have the availability of all eight positions due to the edge of the board. Also, since the problem is phrased as "different squares," you cannot include the square(s) it was previously in.

I would suggest using a chessboard to deal with this problem.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
