Given a root node reference of a BST and a key, delete the node with the given key in the BST. Return the root node reference (possibly updated) of the BST.
Basically, the deletion can be divided into two stages:
Note: Time complexity should be O(height of tree).
root = [5,3,6,2,4,null,7] key = 3 5 / \ 3 6 / \ \ 2 4 7 Given key to delete is 3. So we find the node with value 3 and delete it. One valid answer is [5,4,6,2,null,null,7], shown in the following BST. 5 / \ 4 6 / \ 2 7 Another valid answer is [5,2,6,null,4,null,7]. 5 / \ 2 6 \ \ 4 7
