• It looks that we should mark the first row/col if it is zero, or the whole matrix will be set to Zero.

test case: {{0,0,0,5},{4,3,1,4},{0,1,1,4},{1,2,1,3},{0,0,1,1}}

``````for(int m=0; m<matrix.length; m++){
for(int n=0; n<matrix[0].length; n++){
//a. when m = 0, n = 3, since matrix[0][0] (matrix[m][0]) = 0, set matrix[0][3] to '0'
//b. when m = 1, n = 0, since matrix[0][0] (matrix[0][n]) = 0, set matrix[1][0] to '0'
//...
// c. when m =1, n = 3, since matrix[1][0](matrix[m][0]) is '0', it will set matrix[1][3] to '0'
// which is not right, and it is the consequence of b step
if(matrix[m][0]==0||matrix[0][n]==0){
matrix[m][n]=0;
}
}
}
}
``````

Output: {{0,0,0,0},{0,0,0,0},{0,0,0,0},{0,0,0,0},{0,0,0,0}}

Expected: [[0,0,0,0],[0,0,0,4],[0,0,0,0],[0,0,0,3],[0,0,0,0]]
