Given a binary tree and the task if to check if its Inorder Sequence is a palindrome or not. 
Examples: 
 

Input: 
 

Output: True 
Explanation: 
The Inorder sequence of the tree is “bbaaabb” which is a palindromic string.
Input: 
 

Output: False 
Explanation: 
The Inorder sequence of the tree is “bbdaabb” which is not a palindromic string. 
 

 

Approach: 
To solve the problem, refer to the following steps: 
 

Below is the implementation of above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ Program to check if
// the Inorder sequence of a
// Binary Tree is a palindrome
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Define node of tree
struct node {
    char val;
    node* left;
    node* right;
};
 
// Function to create the node
node* newnode(char i)
{
    node* temp = NULL;
    temp = new node();
    temp->val = i;
    temp->left = NULL;
    temp->right = NULL;
    return temp;
}
 
// Function to convert the tree
// to the double linked list
node* conv_tree(node* root,
                node* shoot)
{
    if (root->left != NULL)
        shoot = conv_tree(root->left,
                          shoot);
 
    root->left = shoot;
 
    if (shoot != NULL)
        shoot->right = root;
 
    shoot = root;
 
    if (root->right != NULL)
        shoot = conv_tree(root->right,
                          shoot);
 
    return shoot;
}
 
// Function for checking linked
// list is palindrome or not
int checkPalin(node* root)
{
    node* voot = root;
 
    // Count the nodes
    // form the back
    int j = 0;
 
    // Set the pointer at the
    // very first node of the
    // linklist and count the
    // length of the linklist
    while (voot->left != NULL) {
        j = j + 1;
        voot = voot->left;
    }
    int i = 0;
 
    while (i < j) {
        // Check if the value matches
        if (voot->val != root->val)
            return 0;
 
        else {
            i = i + 1;
            j = j - 1;
            voot = voot->right;
            root = root->left;
        }
    }
 
    return 1;
}
 
// Driver Program
int main()
{
    node* root = newnode('b');
    root->left = newnode('b');
    root->right = newnode('a');
    root->left->right = newnode('b');
    root->left->left = newnode('a');
 
    node* shoot = conv_tree(root, NULL);
 
    if (checkPalin(shoot))
        cout << "True" << endl;
    else
        cout << "False" << endl;
}
