Are you worrying about the queen of spades? When will you ever learn? Neither East nor West had enough to open the bidding, each has turned up with an ace-king combination, and one of them must hold the ace of diamonds. Get the picture?
The opponent with the ace of diamonds can't have the queen of spades or else he would have 13 high-card points. So...find out who has the ace of diamonds. As there is no danger of a heart ruff (East's deuce denies a doubleton), play the king of diamonds.
If West turns up with the ace of diamonds, play East for the queen of spades and vice versa.
