Suppose I want to increase each off diagonal element of a matrix by 1. Myy program gives me a sequence of matrices each time changing only one entry. I just need the final matrix of the sequence. Please check the following program. What modification is required so that the program changes all the entries at a time?

for i in range(A.nrows()):
    for j in range(A.nrows()):
        if i!=j:
            print A,B

The question was strictly asking how to perform all add-one operations at once. (That print command was of course misplaced in the inner most loop.)

An answer constructs the B-copy already with the right entries. For me works best:

A = random_matrix( QQ, 5, 5 )
B = matrix( QQ, 5, 5, [ A[n,k]+1 for n in range(5) for k in range(5) ] )
print A
print B

Is it homework ? If yes, you should learn about indentation in Python (hence Sage).

Thank you for your response. I have recently started learning sage(python). But what I know is, if indentations were not appropriate, there would be some error while running my code? Is it? My program ran succesfully, the only problem I have is that it is giving me a lot of unnecessary outputs.

You got a broad hint: it's a matter of indentation. Change the level of indentation of the print statement and see what happens.
