Refer to the square as shown above:
Let’s check the options one by one.
If the queen is placed at f8 then there are only two positions namely h8 and a3 under attack by the queen.
If the queen is placed at a7 then there are only two positions namely d7 and a3 under attack by the queen.
If the queen is placed at c1 then there are only two positions namely a3 and a1 under attack by the queen.
If the queen is placed at d3 then there are three positions namely a3, d7 and h7 under attack by the queen.
Hence, the position at which the queen can attack the maximum number of positions is d3.
