Easy Accuracy: 52.29% Submissions: 17117 Points: 2

Given Pointer/Reference to the head of the linked list, the task is to Sort the given linked list using Merge Sort.
Note: If the length of linked list is odd, then the extra node should go in the first list while splitting.

Example 1:

Input:
N = 5
value[]  = {3,5,2,4,1}
Output: 1 2 3 4 5
Explanation: After sorting the given
linked list, the resultant matrix
will be 1->2->3->4->5.

Example 2:

Input:
N = 3
value[]  = {9,15,0}
Output: 0 9 15
Explanation: After sorting the given
linked list , resultant will be
0->9->15.

Your Task:
For C++ and Python: The task is to complete the function mergeSort() which sort the linked list using merge sort function.
For Java: The task is to complete the function mergeSort() and return the node which can be used to print the sorted linked list.

Expected Time Complexity: O(N*Log(N))
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Constraints:
1 <= T <= 100
1 <= N <= 105
