**Write a function that takes in a 2 dimensional array of integers and returns the third largest

number. Let the number of columns of your 2 dimensional array be 5. Call this function from

the main program with 2 different arrays to show that it works.

**

Ive tried to make sense of it and create a code but i am not sure how to call the function in the main function. i tried to create a variable int a[][5], which gave me an error saying that that the first bracket can't be empty. He doesn't specify the number of rows, so should it be 1, by default?

I am trying to understand a function he used in class as example. This was a code to find the second maximum class

which is

int SecondMax2D(int a[][5], int rows) { int max1; int max2; if (a[0][0]>a[0][1]) { max1= a[0][0]; max2=a[0][1]; } else { max1=a[0][1]; max2=a[0][0]; } for (int row=0; row<rows; row++) { for (int col=0; col<10; col++) { if(row = = 0 && (col == 0 || col ==1)) continue; if (a[row][col]> max1) { max2=max1; max1=a[row][col]; } else if (a[row][col]>max2) max2=a[row][col]; } } return max2; }

I am not quite sure what int rows is supposed to be. isnt a[] supposed to be the number of rows?

If wanted to call this function in the main function, how would i do it?

int main() { SecondMax2d(__, ___,___) // If he gives a question(similar to the one above) where he says it should have 10 columns, without specifying rows, i am not sure what's supposed to go in the first blank, and the last, which is supposed to be int rows. system("pause"); return 0; }

Thanks for your help
