Question

You are given the heads of two sorted linked lists list1 and list2.

Merge the two lists in a one sorted list. The list should be made by splicing together the nodes of the first two lists.

Return the head of the merged linked list.

Example 1:

Input: list1 = [1,2,4], list2 = [1,3,4]
Output: [1,1,2,3,4,4]

Example 2:

Input: list1 = [], list2 = []
Output: []

Example 3:

Input: list1 = [], list2 = [0]
Output: [0]

Constraints:

  • The number of nodes in both lists is in the range [0, 50].
  • -100 <= Node.val <= 100
  • Both list1 and list2 are sorted in non-decreasing order.

Python Solution

# Definition for singly-linked list.
# class ListNode:
#     def __init__(self, val=0, next=None):
#         self.val = val
#         self.next = next
class Solution:
    def mergeTwoLists(self, l1: ListNode, l2: ListNode) -> ListNode:
        root = ListNode(-1)
        h = root
        while l1 or l2:
            if l1 and l2:
                if l1.val<l2.val:
                    root.next = l1
                    root = root.next
                    l1=l1.next
                else:
                    root.next=l2
                    root = root.next
                    l2=l2.next
                    
            elif l1:
                root.next = l1
                break
                
            elif l2:
                root.next = l2
                break
        return h.next
