Solution: Reverse Nodes in Even Length Groups

Let's solve the Reverse Nodes in Even Length Groups problem using the In-place Reversal of a Linked List pattern.

Statement

Given the head of a linked list, the nodes in it are assigned to each group in a sequential manner. The length of these groups follows the sequence of natural numbers. Natural numbers are positive whole numbers denoted by (1,2,3,4...)(1,2,3,4...).

In other words:

  • The 1st1^{st} node is assigned to the first group.

  • The 2nd2^{nd} and 3rd3^{rd} nodes are assigned to the second group.

  • The 4th4^{th}, 5th5^{th}, and 6th6^{th} nodes are assigned to the third group, and so on.

Your task is to reverse the nodes in each group with an even number of nodes and return the head of the modified linked list.

Note: The length of the last group may be less than or equal to 1 + the length of the second to the last group.

Constraints:

  • 11 \leq Number of nodes 500\leq 500

  • 00 \leq LinkedListNode.data 103\leq 10^3
