Missing vertex among N axis-parallel rectangles

Given N axis-parallel rectangles in a 2-D Cartesian coordinate system and coordinates of 4N-1 vertices, the task is to find the single vertex missing. Examples: 
 

Input: N = 2, V[][] = {{1, 1}, {1, 2}, {4, 6}, {2, 1}, {9, 6}, {9, 3}, {4, 3} 
Output: {2, 2} 
Explanation: 
The coordinates forming an axis parallel rectangle are {4, 6}, {9, 6}, {4, 3}, {9, 3}. 
For the remaining coordinates to form a rectangle {1, 1}, {1, 2}, {2, 1}, the missing coordinate is {2, 2}
Input: N = 3, V[][] = {{3, 8}, {0, 0}, {4, 6}, {0, 2}, {9, 6}, {9, 3}, {4, 3}, {6, 4}, {1, 0}, {3, 4}, {6, 8}} 
Output: {1, 2}

Approach: 
Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

  • Store the frequencies x-coordinates and y-coordinates in a Map.
  • Iterate over the Map to find an element with odd frequency for both the co-ordinates.
  • Finally, print the x and y coordinate with odd frequency.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
