Medium Accuracy: 37.61% Submissions: 2118 Points: 4

Given a string ‘s’, the task is to check if it can be constructed by taking a substring of it and appending multiple copies of the substring together. 

Example 1:

Input: s = "ababab"
Output: 1
Explanation: It is contructed by 
appending "ab" 3 times

Example 2:

Input: s = "ababac"
Output: 0
Explanation: Not possible to construct

User Task:
Your task is to complete the function isRepeat() which takes a single string as input and returns 1 if possible to construct, otherwise 0. You do not need to take any input or print anything.

Expected Time Complexity: O(|s|)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(|s|)

Constraints:
1 <= |s| <= 105
