Opening lead: 2.

Partner plays the Q, declarer wins the king and leads the Q at trick two. Which diamond do you play?

I hope you didn’t fall for this one! Partner must have the A.

Why in the world would declarer be leading the Q, holding the A-Q, unless you flashed your hand?

Furthermore, there is a very good chance partner has the singleton ace. Play low!
