immediately less strong in case of no capture.

b) Bishops become Queens
a unit (except the King) that captures disappears ipso facto.
So if a side is more populated, it must have made a capture by the King, and therefore can no longer castle.
Here, Black is 9, White 8. White castling is therefore a priori possible.
Pawns cannot change file.

#2 breton adverse(11+11)
Breton opponent after each capture, a unit of the same nature must disappear (if possible)
from the side that suffered the capture. If there is more than one, the choice belongs to the capturing side.
