Check if all enemies are killed with bombs placed in a matrix

Last Updated : 15 Sep, 2022

Given a Character matrix as input, the task is to check whether all the enemies are killed or not based on below conditions:

1. The matrix can contain 3 characters
X –> Denotes the War area.
B –> Denotes the bomb.
E –> Denotes the Enemies.
2. Bomb ‘B’ can blast in only horizontal and vertical directions from one end to another.
3. If all enemies are killed by the present bombs, print Yes, else print No

Examples:

```Input: matrix =
XXEX
XBXX
XEXX
XXBX
Output: Yes

Input: matrix =
XXEX
XBXX
XEXX
XXXX
Output: No```

Approach: The given problem can be solved by the following approach:

1. Get the character Matrix
2. Traverse to find all bomb indices in the matrix
3. And store the rows and column in rs and cls array.
4. After all traversals, check for each enemy if there is a bomb present in that row or column or not.
5. If any enemy is present in a row or column where there is no bomb, Print NO, else Print Yes.
