Today we will be solving the Leetcode question “Merge Strings Alternately” from the easy category.
You are given two strings
word2. Merge the strings by adding letters in alternating order, starting with
word1. If a string is longer than the other, append the additional letters onto the end of the merged string.
Return the merged string.
word1 = "abc", word2 = "pqr"
The merged string will be merged as so: word1: a b c word2: p q r merged: a p b q c r
1 <= word1.length, word2.length <= 100
word2consist of lowercase English letters.
Test Case 1
word1 = "ab", word2 = "pqrs"
Notice that as word2 is longer, "rs" is appended to the end. word1: a b word2: p q r s merged: a p b q r s
Test Case 2
word1 = "abcd", word2 = "pq"
Notice that as word1 is longer, "cd" is appended to the end. word1: a b c d word2: p q merged: a p b q c d
