Problem Statement
Suggest Edit

Given a 9X9 2-D matrix, with some cells filled with digits(1-9), and some empty cells(denoted by 0), you need to find whether there exists a way to fill all the empty cells with some digit(1-9) such that the final matrix is a valid Sudoku Solution.

A Sudoku solution must satisfy all the following conditions-

1. Each of the digits 1-9 must occur exactly once in each row.
2. Each of the digits 1-9 must occur exactly once in each column.
3. Each of the digits 1-9 must occur exactly once in each of the 9, 3x3 sub-matrices of the matrix.
Note
1. There will always be a cell in the matrix which is empty.
2. The given initial matrix will always be consistent according to the rules mentioned in the problem statement.
Input Format:
The first line contains a single integer t -  the number of test cases. The next 9t lines contains the description of each test case.
There will be 9 lines for each test case with each line containing 9 space separated digits, (0, if the cell is empty, digit(1-9) otherwise.
Output Format:
Print “yes”(without quotes), if there is way or “no” (without quotes) otherwise. Note the lowercase format of the output.
Note:
You do not need to print anything, it has already been taken care of. Just implement the given function.
Constraints:
1 <= T <= 5
N=9
0 <= Matrix[i][j] <= 9
