If M is the matrix with 400 columns, and if M2 is the matrix to be obtained from it, do this:
n = 400;
M2 = M(:,mod((1:n)-1,10)<=1);

n = 400;
M2 = M(:,mod((1:n)-1,10)<=1); % <-- Into one matrix
M3 = M(:,mod((1:n)-1,10)>=2); % <-- Into the other matrix

A = 1:20;
M1 = A([1,2,11,12]);
M2 = setdiff(A,M1);
