Problem approach

Step 1 : I first applied vertical traversal and store it in a hashmap and print boundary element of each value in the hashmap.
Step 2 : He asked me the time complexity and space complexity.
Step 3 : He asked to optimise the solution and gave some hints.
Step 4 : I wasn't able to think at that points but he was expecting something using recursion.

2. Segregate even and odd nodes in a Linked List

Problem approach

Step 1 : I told him to create two linkedLists. One for odd elements and another for even elements. and while traversing the given list adding elements to even and odd lists respectively.
Step 2 : He asked me to optimise the space complexity.
Step 3 : I told him to change the list in place which will be taking O(1) complexity.
