  • The number of nodes in the list is n.
  • 1 <= k <= n <= 5000
  • 0 <= Node.val <= 1000


The problem follows the In-place Reversal of a LinkedList pattern and is quite similar to Reverse a Sub-list. The only difference is that we have to reverse all the sub-lists. We can use the same approach, starting with the first sub-list (i.e.
