Majority Element
Basic Accuracy: 48.6% Submissions: 28714 Points: 1

Given an array A of N elements. Find the majority element in the array. A majority element in an array A of size N is an element that appears more than N/2 times in the array.

Example 1:

N = 3 
A[] = {1,2,3} 
Output: -1

Explanation: Since, each element in 
{1,2,3} appears only once so there 
is no majority element.

Example 2:

N = 5 
A[] = {3,1,3,3,2} 
Output: 3
Explanation: Since, 3 is present 
more than N/2 times, so it is 
the majority element.

Your Task:
The task is to complete the function majorityElement() which returns the majority element in the array. If no majority exists, return -1.

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

1 <= N <= 107
0 <= Ai <= 106
