Note: display is rotated, W is dummy. Matchpoints. Auction info: 3 = forcing, 5 = 1/4. N-S have agreed "standard" leads and discards, that is: high encourages, low discourages, hilo even, & lohi odd, present count.

Partner, South, leads the J. Declarer plays two more rounds of hearts, ending in hand, on which partner discards 10 and 2. Declarer now leads 7, 4, K. What is your analysis of what has to be a highly distributional declarer hand, and what is your defense?

More to the point: What is/should be the meaning of partner's second discard? his play of the 4?
