Given a square grid of size **N**, each cell of which contains integer cost which represents a cost to traverse through that cell, we need to find a path from top left cell to bottom right cell by which total cost incurred is minimum.

**Note : **It is assumed that negative cost cycles do not exist in input matrix.

**Input:**

The first line of input will contain number of testcases **T**. Then T test cases follow. Each test case contains 2 lines. The first line of each test case contains an integer N denoting the size of the grid. Next line of each test contains a single line containing N*N space separated integers depecting cost of respective cell from (0,0) to (N,N).

**Output:**

For each test case output a single integer depecting the minimum cost to reach the destination.

**Constraints:**

1 <= T <= 50

1 <= N <= 50

**Example:
Input:**

**Explanation:**

**Testcase 1:**

Grid is:

31, 100, 65, 12, 18,

10, 13, 47, 157, 6,

100. 113, 174, 11, 33,

88, 124, 41, 20, 140,

99, 32, 111, 41, 20

A cost grid is given in below diagram, minimum

cost to reach bottom right from top left

is 327 (31 + 10 + 13 + 47 + 65 + 12 + 18 + 6 + 33 + 11 + 20 + 41 + 20)
