What will be the result of following code execution?
object Main extends App {
  def quiz = {
    val result = 5
       + 6
  }
  println(quiz)
}
Explanation

  def quiz = {
    val result = 5;
    + 6
  }
The result will be last line: +6
Theory
  • One issue with Scala‚Äôs semicolon convention is how to write expressions that span several lines. For instance
    someLongExpression
    + someOtherExpression
    
    would be interpreted as two expressions:
    someLongExpression;
    + someOtherExpression
    
    To overcome this problem you could write the multi-line expression in parentheses, because semicolons are never inserted inside (...):
    (someLongExpression
    + someOtherExpression)
