Problem Description

The n-queens puzzle is the problem of placing n queens on an n x n chessboard such that no two queens attack each other.Given an integer n, return all distinct solutions to the n-queens puzzle.

Example 1:

Input: n = 4
Output: [[".Q..","...Q","Q...","..Q."],["..Q.","Q...","...Q",".Q.."]]
