Given a Binary Tree, print the nodes level-wise, each level on a new line. 

Example

Output:
1
2 3
4 5

We have discussed two solutions in the articles below. 
Print level order traversal line by line | Set 1 
Level order traversal line by line | Set 2 (Using Two Queues)
In this post, a different approach using one queue is discussed. First insert the root and a null element into the queue. This null element acts as a delimiter. Next, pop from the top of the queue and add its left and right nodes to the end of the queue and then print at the top of the queue. Continue this process till the queues become empty.

    if (root == NULL) return;
  
    // Create an empty queue for

    // to store front element of

Time Complexity: O(n)

Space Complexity: O(n) for queue, where n is no of nodes of binary tree
