count number of lines and separate them into two columns

Hii, I'm new to powerbi. For the below table, for each cutomer Id, I want to split the "Alerts" column into two columns based on position of the line. The odd ones should get stored into Alerts1 and even ones into Alerts2. I'm not able to do this. Can anyone help me with this. Thank you.

Hii, Thanks for your reply. After applying this formula, I'm getting this below error.
Expression.Error: 3 arguments were passed to a function which expects 2.

Can you please tell me why it is coming? Thank you
