A.The wise emperor commanded Yi to shoot but one of the suns out of the sky.

B.The wise emperor commanded Yi to shoot nine of the suns out of the sky.

I assume that you are talking about some legend.

A.The wise emperor commanded Yi to shoot ONLY one of the suns out of the sky.
(which means just one sun) or maybe it could be
A.The wise emperor commanded Yi to ALL BUT one of the suns out of the sky.
(which means all of the suns except for one)

B.The wise emperor commanded Yi to shoot nine of the suns out of the sky.
This one seems right (if it is a legend or story of some type).
