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

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. For each bomb found, see if any enemy is present in its vertical or horizontal direction. If present kill that enemy, i.e. change E to X
  4. After all traversals, check if any enemy is present in the matrix or not.
  5. Print Yes if all enemies are killed, else print No.
