Python Counter | Majority Element
Majority Element: A majority element in an array A of size n is an element that appears more than n/2 times (and hence there is at most one such element).
Write a function which takes an array and emits the majority element (if it exists), otherwise prints NONE as follows:
Input : 3 3 4 2 4 4 2 4 4 Output : 4 Input : 3 3 4 2 4 4 2 4 Output : NONE
- Convert given list of elements into dictionary using Counter() method, having elements as keys and their frequencies as value.
- Now traverse complete dictionary and check for element whose frequency follows the condition greater than (n/2) where n is size of list. That element will be majority element.
