Mother Vertex
Easy Accuracy: 35.32% Submissions: 7096 Points: 2

Given a Directed Graph, find a Mother Vertex in the Graph (if present). 
A Mother Vertex is a vertex through which we can reach all the other vertices of the Graph.

The first line of input contains an integer T. Then T test cases follow. Each test case contains two integers (number of vertices) and (number of edges). In the next line are E space separated values u,v denoting an edge from u to v.

Output: For each testcase return the mother vertex of graph (if exists) else return -1.

Your Task:
You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function findMother() which takes a Directed graph and the number of vertices as inputs and returns a Mother Vertex in the Graph. If the graph has multiple Mother Vertices, return the one with the smallest value. If the Mother Vertex does not exist, return -1.

Expected Time Complexity: O(V + E).
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(V).

1 <= T <= 500
1 <= V <= 500
1 <= E <= 3000
0 <= u, v < N

Testcase 1:
According to the given edges, all nodes can be reaced from nodes from 0, 1 and 2. But, since we are traversing from node 0, so 0 is the output.

Testcase 2: According to the given edges, no vertices are there from where we can reach all vertices. So, output is -1.
