1. You are given a number N, which represents the rows and columns of a 2-D matrix. 2. Matrix contains only three values - a. Cell is empty. b. Cell contains a cherry. c. Cell contains a thorn and you can not pass through this cell. 3. You have to find the maximum number of cherries that you can collect following these rules : a. You have to start from (0,0) and travel till (N-1,N-1) by moving right or down, one step at a time. b. After reaching (N-1,N-1), you have to come back to (0,0) by moving left or up, one step at a time. Note -> If there is no valid path between the top-left cell and bottom-right cell, then no cherries can be collected.
1 <= N <= 50 Cells can have only three values 0,1 and -1.
A number N arr1 arr2... (N*N numbers).
