# Queen Blocks Codechef Solution Hello Programmers In this post, you will know how to solve the Queen Blocks Codechef Solution. The Problem Code QUEENBL.

One more thing to add, don’t directly look for the solutions, first try to solve the problems of Codechef by yourself. If you find any difficulty after trying several times, then you can look for solutions.

### Problem

You are given an 8×8 chessboard. Your enemy king is at point (X, Y) (1 ≤ X, Y ≤ 8).

You need to place some number of queen pieces on the chessboard such that the following conditions are satisfied:

• The king should not be under attack by any of the queens that you have placed.
• The king should not be able to make any move.

Note that a king can move one unit in any of the 8 direction while a queen can attack horizontally, vertically as well as diagonally.

Find the minimum number of queens required to satisfy the given conditions. Print the chessboard where 0 denotes empty cells, 1 denotes the king, and 2 denotes the queen(s) placed by you in some position(s).

In case of multiple answers, print any.

### Input Format

• The first line of input will contain a single integer T, denoting the number of test cases.
• The only line of each test case contains two space-separated integers A and B — the coordinates of the king.

### Output Format

For each test case, output a 8×8 grid consisting of King, Queen(s) and blank cells.

Print the chessboard in 8 lines where each line has 8 space-separated integers where 0 denotes empty cells, 1 denotes the king, and 2 denotes the queen(s) placed by you in some position(s).

1 ≤ T ≤ 64
1 ≤ A, B ≤ 8

Input

1

1

### Output

```0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0
1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0```

### Explanation:

Test case 11: We can place 22 queens at (1, 3)(1,3) and (3, 3)(3,3) respectively. Thus, the king at (2, 1)(2,1) has no safe squares to go to and is not under attack.
