## PROBLEM STATEMENT

#### For example:

``````For given 2D array :

[    [ 1,  2,  3 ],
[ 4,  5,  6 ],
[ 7,  8,  9 ]  ]

After 90 degree rotation in anti clockwise direction, it will become:

[   [ 3,  6,  9 ],
[ 2,  5,  8 ],
[ 1,  4,  7 ]   ]
``````
##### Input Format :
``````The first line of input contains an integer 'T' representing the number of the test case. Then the test case follows.

The first line of each test case contains an integer 'N' representing the size of the square matrix ARR.

Each of the next 'N' lines contains 'N' space-separated integers representing the elements of the matrix 'ARR'.
``````
##### Output Format:
``````For each test case, return the rotated matrix.
``````
##### Note:
``````You do not need to print anything; it has already been taken care of. Just implement the given function.
``````
##### Constraints:
``````1 ≤ T ≤ 50
1 ≤ N ≤ 100
1 ≤ ARR[i][j] ≤ 10^9

Time Limit: 1 sec
`````` Approach 1
1. There are N/2  cycles in a matrix of size ‘N’.
2. We traverse in the matrix from the outermost cycle, i.e. (0,0) to innermost cycle i.e. ((N/2)-1, (N/2)-1).
3. For each cycle, we’ll swap the elements of the matrix in a group of four elements i.e. for each ‘i’ <= ‘j’ < ‘N-i-1’ for each 0 <= ‘i’ <= ‘(N/2)-1’ we swap:
• ‘ARR[i] [j]’ with ‘ARR[j, N-1-i]’
• ‘ARR[j, N-1-i]’ with ‘ARR[N-1-i, N-1-j]’
• ‘ARR[N-1-i, N-1-j]’ with ‘ARR[N-1-j,i]’
• ‘ARR[N-1-j,i]’ with ‘ARR[i][j]’
4. At the end of these loops, we’ll get rotated matrix.
5. Print the matrix.
