给定一个非空数组 A，包含有 N 个整数，起始下标为 0。数组包含有奇数个元素，其中除了唯一一个元素之外，其他每个元素都可以与数组中另一个有相同值的元素配对。

比如，在下面这个数组中：

- 下标为 0 和 2 的元素的值是 9
- 下标为 1 和 3 的元素的值是 3
- 下标为 4 和 6 的元素的值是 9
- 下标为 5 的元素的值是 7，无法配对

写一个函数：

int solution(int A[], int N);

对满足上述条件的数组 A，返回数组中无法配对的元素的值。

- N is an odd integer within the range [1..1,000,000];
- each element of array A is an integer within the range [1..1,000,000,000];
- all but one of the values in A occur an even number of times.

For example, in array A such that:

- the elements at indexes 0 and 2 have value 9,
- the elements at indexes 1 and 3 have value 3,
- the elements at indexes 4 and 6 have value 9,
- the element at index 5 has value 7 and is unpaired.

Write a function:

object Solution { def solution(a: Array[Int]): Int }

For example, given array A such that:

the function should return 7, as explained in the example above.
