Program to print elements of a Matrix row-wise skipping alternate elements

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:
