Problem of the day

You are given an ** 'N * N'** matrix of integers where each row and each column is sorted in increasing order. You are given a target integer

Find the position of 'X' in the matrix. If it exists then return the pair {i, j} where 'i' represents the row and 'j' represents the column of the array, otherwise return {-1,-1}

```
If the given matrix is:
[ [1, 2, 5],
[3, 4, 9],
[6, 7, 10]]
We have to find the position of 4. We will return {1,1} since A[1][1] = 4.
```

Detailed explanation

```
The first line of input contains a single integer 'T', representing the number of test cases or queries to be run.
Then the 'T' test cases follow.
The first line of each test case contains two space-separated integers 'N' and 'X', representing the size of the matrix and the target element respectively.
Each of the next 'N' lines contains 'N' space-separated integers representing the elements of the matrix.
```

```
For each test case, print the position of 'X', if it exists, otherwise print “-1 -1”.
```

Note:

```
It is guaranteed that the matrix contains distinct elements.
You are not required to print the expected output, it has already been taken care of. Just implement the function.

1 ≤ T ≤ 10
1 ≤ N ≤ 10^3
1 ≤ X ≤ 10^6
1 ≤ Aij ≤ 10^6
where 'T' is the number of test cases, 'N' is the number of rows and columns, 'X' is the target value, and Aij is the elements of the matrix.

```
The first test case is already explained in the problem statement.
The second test case, the given matrix is:
[[4, 5],
[5, 6]]
We have to find the position of 5. So we return {0,1}.
