Given the following function,
def sum(a: Int, b: Int) = a + b
Select all correct ways to store function in a variable.

  • A partially applied function is an expression in which you don't supply all of the arguments needed by the function. Instead, you supply some, or none, of the needed arguments. For example, to create a partially applied function expression involving sum,
    scala> def sum(a: Int, b: Int, c: Int) = a + b + c
    sum: (a: Int,b: Int,c: Int)Int
    in which you supply none of the three required arguments, you just place an underscore after "sum". The resulting function can then be stored in a variable. Here's an example:
    scala> val a = sum _
    a: (Int, Int, Int) => Int =
