# Reverse Diagonal elements of matrix

Given a square matrix of order n*n, we have to reverse the elements of both diagonals.

Examples:

```Input : {1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6,
7, 8, 9}
Output :{9, 2, 7,
4, 5, 6,
3, 8, 1}
Explanation:
Major Diagonal Elements before:  1 5 9
After reverse:   9 5 1
Minor Diagonal Elements before:  3 5 7
After reverse:   7 5 3
Input :{1,  2,  3,  4,
5,  6,  7,  8,
9,  10, 11, 12,
13, 14, 15, 16}

Output :{16, 2, 3, 13,
5, 11, 10, 8,
9, 7,  6,  12,
4, 14, 15, 1}
```
