Print cousins of a given node in Binary Tree
Given a binary tree and a node, print all cousins of given node. Note that siblings should not be printed.
Input : root of below tree 1 / \ 2 3 / \ / \ 4 5 6 7 and pointer to a node say 5. Output : 6, 7
The idea to first find level of given node using the approach discussed here. Once we have found level, we can print all nodes at a given level using the approach discussed here. The only thing to take care of is, sibling should not be printed. To handle this, we change the printing function to first check for sibling and print node only if it is not sibling.
Below is the implementation of above idea.
Time Complexity : O(n)
Can we solve this problem using single traversal? Please refer below article
