There are two singly linked lists of size N and M in a system. But, due to some programming error the end node of one of the linked list got linked into one of the node of second list, forming a inverted Y shaped list. Write a program to get the point where two linked lists intersect each other.
Above diagram shows an example with two linked list having 15 as intersection point. Expected time complexity is O(m + n) where m and n are lengths of two linked lists.
First line of input is the number of test cases T. Every test case has four lines. First line of every test case contains three numbers, x (number of nodes before merge point in 1st list), y (number of nodes before merge point in 11nd list) and z (number of nodes after merge point). Next three lines contain x, y and z values.
Print the data of the node in the linked list where two linked lists intersects.
The task is to complete the function intersetPoint() which finds the point of intersection of two linked list. The function should return data value of a node where two linked lists merge. If linked list do not merge at any point, then it shoudl return -1.
1 <= T <= 50
1 <= N <= 100
1 <= value <= 1000

Testcase 1: The point of intersection of two linked list is 5, means both of them get linked (intersects) with each other at node whose value is 5.
