Contract 2NT by South. The Qis lead by West....................You have only eight top tricks so you need one more. It is likely to be in the long club suit, you have eight cards in the club suit so they have only got five (hopefully a 3/2 split) even with a 4/1 split you have the top four clubs so can "establish" the 2 as your fifth club trick........Take care when you play the club suit that you play the KC first (big card in the short hand) so that you do not "block" the suit.
Contract 3NT by South. Opening lead is Q by West................You have only eight top tricks so you need one more...............The only possible hope is the K.............You must lead a low card from South TOWARDS the K......Your only hope is that the A is "in front of" the king in the West hand...........this is only a 50% chance but at least give yourself that chance!.........Remember it is a "circular game".......... Playing against other beginners they will sometimes lead out their Aces early and make life easy for you ..........but as they get more confident they learn not to, they keep their Aces to kill their opponents Kings!
