```Input : x[] = {0, 0, 0, 0, 0|
y[] = {9, 2, 1, 3, 4}
Output : Parallel to Y Axis

Input : x[] = {1, 2, 3|
y[] = {9, 2, 1}
Output : Not Parallel to X or Y Axis```

Approach

To find the points parallel to X or Y axis just check if the points are same for any axis or not. If all the points on X axis are same then the line is parallel to Y axis. If all the points on Y axis are same so the line is parallel to X axis. If none of the cases is true, then it is not parallel to any axis.
Input the value N. And then Input the value of points in a ## C++
