using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
class arrsampl

}
void printarray()
{
Console.WriteLine("Elements in the Given Matrix : ");
for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < 3; j++)
{
Console.Write(x[i, j] + "\t");
}
Console.WriteLine("\n");
}
}
int max()
{
int big = x[0, 0];
for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < 3; j++)
{
if (big < x[i, j])
{
big = x[i, j];
}
}
}
return big;
}
public static void Main()
{
arrsampl obj = new arrsampl();
obj.printarray();
Console.WriteLine("Largest Element : {0}", obj.max());
}
}```
Program Explanation

In this C# program, we are creating the object variable ‘obj’ for ‘arrsampl’ class. The printarray() method is used to enter the coefficient element values of the array using a[i,j] variable. The max() method is used to find the smallest element in a matrix.

For loop is used to check each element values in the array by using if else condition statement. Check the value of ‘big’ variable is less than the value of x[i,j] variable. If the condition is true, then iterate the statement and assign the value of the x[i,j] variable to big variable. Print the largest element in a matrix.
