This is screenshot from V.I Arnold's book on Classical mechanics. My question is how do we find matrix of any nform. Detailed answer please.

There is no such thing as a "matrix of an nform". The point is that a 2form has components of the form ##\omega_{ij}## with two indices, that can be represented as the components of a matrix. This is not the case for a general ##n##form, which has components with ##n## indices.
Can you explain it in brief? I am new to forms. I forgot where it was written in book.Its just a matrix containing the components ##\omega_{ij}## in the appropriate positions.
YesAre you familiar on how to write down the components of a rank 2 tensor in a matrix?
