Construct Tree from Preorder Traversal
Medium Accuracy: 50.68% Submissions: 14050 Points: 4

Construct a binary tree of size N using two given arrays pre[] and preLN[]. Array pre[] represents preorder traversal of a binary tree. Array preLN[] has only two possible values L and N. The value L in preLN[] indicates that the corresponding node in Binary Tree is a leaf node and value N indicates that the corresponding node is a non-leaf node.
Note: Every node in the binary tree has either 0 or 2 children.

Example 1:

Input :
N = 5
pre[] = {10, 30, 20, 5, 15}
preLN[] = {N, N, L, L, L}

Output:
10
/    \
30      15
/  \
20    5

You dont need to read input or print anything. Complete the function constructTree() which takes N, pre[] and preLN[] as input parameters and returns the root node of the constructed binary tree.

Note: The output generated by the compiler will contain the inorder traversal of the created binary tree.

Expected Time Complexity: O(N)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(N)

Constraints:
1 ≤ N ≤ 104
1 ≤ pre[i] ≤ 107
preLN[i]: {'N', 'L'}
