Object Oriented vs Functional Language

def function1(a:Int)={
List(55,6,6).map(function1) //function1 is used as input argument just as any Int or String literal.
def function2():Int=>String={
function2()(5) // Output is val res13: String = 5.
def function1(a:Int):Int = i+1 // referentially transparent
def function1(a:Int):Int = { println(i); i+1 } // Not referentially transparent
How println makes the function referentially not transparent? Calling, function1(1)+function1(1) The result will be 4 and the output will be,
// 1
// 1
Whereas executing, val a= function1(1); a+a; the output will be different,
Result is same as 4 but the output is,
// 1
var a=5
def func3(x:Int)={
func3(5)// Result is 10. Consider you changing the value of a , var a=3
func3(5)// Result is 8.
val functn = (a:Int,b:Int)=> a+ b;functn(5,6).toString; // result is val res1: String = 11. toString is a concrete method available under trait Function2.
val a:Tuple[Int,String]=Tuple(1,"trial") // this is wrong. You will get error. val a:Tuple2[Int,String]=Tuple2(1,"trial") // this works
val a=(1,"trial") // this also works
def func2(a:Int,b:Int) = a+b
val first=func2(3,_)
first(4) // Result is 7
val second=func2 _
second(3,4) //Result is 7
def func4(implicit a:Int,b:String,c:Double)={
implicit val first_arg=5
implicit val second_arg="Hello"
implicit val third_arg=9.0
func4 //The output is,
implicit val first_arg=5
implicit val second_arg="Hello"
implicit val third_arg=9.0
implicit val first_copy=6 // Two implicit Int values are available for the first argument
func4 //Error thrown,
error: ambiguous implicit values:
Implicit functions with implicit type conversions,
implicit def func3(a:Int):String ={
println("I am inside function")
"HEllo!! Welcome Home"
100.split("!!") //Result is,

def func1 =println(a)
implicit def implicit_function(b:Int):trial_class =new trial_class("Check!! Check!!")

def mutilplearguments(a:Int,b:Int,c:Int)= {
a+b*c/100 + a*c/100
mutilplearguments(5,2,3) // Result is 5
//Curried Function
def mutilplearguments(a:Int)(b:Int)(c:Int)= {
a+b*c/100 + a*c/100
// Curried function (partially applied)
