Problem Statement

You are given a singly Linked List of integers. Your task is to return true if the given singly linked list is a palindrome otherwise returns false.

For example:
The given linked list is 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 2-> 1-> NULL.

It is a palindrome linked list because the given linked list has the same order of elements when traversed forwards and backward​.
Follow Up:
Can you solve the problem in O(N) time complexity and O(1) space complexity iteratively?

Sample Input 1 :
2
1 2 3 4 5 6 -1
1 2 1 -1
Sample Output 1 :
false
true
Explanation for sample 1:
For the first test case, it is not a palindrome because Linked List doesn't have the same order of elements when traversed forwards and backwards​.

For the second test case, it is a palindrome linked list because a Linked List has the same order of elements when traversed forwards and backwards​.
Sample Input 2 :
2
1 -1
1 10 45 10 1 -1
Sample Output 2 :
true
true
