NumPy: Create an 4x4 matrix in which 0 and 1 are staggered, with zeros on the main diagonal

NumPy: Basic Exercise-30 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to create an 4x4 matrix in which 0 and 1 are staggered, with zeros on the main diagonal.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import numpy as np
x = np.zeros((4, 4))
x[::2, 1::2] = 1
x[1::2, ::2] = 1
print(x)

Sample Output:

[[ 0.  1.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  1.  0.]
 [ 0.  1.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  1.  0.]]
