Given a matrix of N*N size where N is always odd, the task is to print elements of a matrix row-wise skipping alternate elements.
Examples
 

Input: mat[3][3] = 
{{1, 4, 3},
 {2, 5, 6},
 {7, 8, 9}}
Output: 1 3 5 7 9

Input: mat[5][5] = 
{{1, 2, 3, 4, 9},
 {5, 6, 7, 8, 44},
 {19, 10, 11, 12, 33},
 {13, 14, 15, 16, 55},
 {77, 88, 99, 111, 444}}
Output: 1 3 9 6 8 19 11 33 14 16 77 99 444 

 

Approach: 
 

  1. Start traversing the matrix.
  2. For each row, check if the row number is even or odd. 
    • If the row is even, then print the elements at the even index of that row.
    • If the row is odd, print the elements at the odd index of that row.

Below is the implementation of above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ program to print elements of a Matrix
// row-wise skipping alternate elements
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
#define R 100
#define C 100
 
// Function to print the alternate
// elements of a matrix
void printElements(int mat[][C], int n)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        if (i % 2 == 0)
            for (int j = 0; j < n; j += 2)
                cout << mat[i][j] << " ";
        else
            for (int j = 1; j < n; j += 2)
                cout << mat[i][j] << " ";
    }
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int n = 3;
    int mat[R][C] = { { 1, 5, 3 },
                      { 2, 4, 7 },
                      { 9, 8, 6 } };
 
    printElements(mat, n);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java Program to print elements of a Matrix
// row-wise skipping alternate elements
import java.util.*;
import java.lang.*;
 
class GFG{
// Function to print the alternate
// elements of a matrix
static void printElements(int[][] mat, int n)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    {
        if (i % 2 == 0)
            for (int j = 0; j < n; j += 2)
                System.out.print(mat[i][j] + " ");
        else
            for (int j = 1; j < n; j += 2)
                System.out.print(mat[i][j] + " ");
    }
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String args[])
{
    int n = 3;
    int[][] mat = new int[][]{ { 1, 5, 3 },{ 2, 4, 7 },{ 9, 8, 6 } };
 
    printElements(mat, n);
}
}
