# Delete all the even nodes of a Circular Linked List

Given a circular singly linked list containing N nodes, the task is to delete all the even nodes from the list. Examples:

```Input : 57->11->2->56->12->61
Output : List after deletion : 57 -> 11 -> 61

Input : 9->11->32->6->13->20
Output : List after deletion : 9 -> 11 -> 13
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

The idea is to traverse the nodes of the circular singly linked list one by one and get the pointer of the nodes having even data. Delete those nodes by following the approach used in this post.

Below is the implementation of the above idea:
