Finding middle element in a linked list
Easy Accuracy: 47.37% Submissions: 100k+ Points: 2

Given a singly linked list of N nodes.
The task is to find the middle of the linked list. For example, if the linked list is
1-> 2->3->4->5, then the middle node of the list is 3.
If there are two middle nodes(in case, when N is even), print the second middle element.
For example, if the linked list given is 1->2->3->4->5->6, then the middle node of the list is 4.

Example 1:

Input:
Output: 3
Explanation:
Middle of linked list is 3.


Example 2:

Input:
Output: 7
Explanation:
Middle of linked list is 7.


The task is to complete the function getMiddle() which takes a head reference as the only argument and should return the data at the middle node of the linked list.

Expected Time Complexity: O(N).
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1).

Constraints:
1 <= N <= 5000
