# Replace even nodes of a doubly linked list with the elements of array

Given a doubly linked list and an array with only odd values. Both are of equal size N. The task is replace all node which have even value with the Array elements from left to right. Examples:

Input : List = 6 9 8 7 4
Arr[] = {3, 5, 23, 17, 1}
Output : List = 3 9 5 7 23

Input : List = 9 14 7 12 8 13
Arr[] = {5, 1, 17, 21, 11, 7}
Output : List = 9 5 7 1 17 13

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

Approach: The idea is to traverse the nodes of the doubly linked list one by one and get the pointer of the nodes having even data then replace by the value of the array and increment the index of the array and move to the next node in the linked list.

Below is the implementation of above approach:
