    // Scala program to find the last element of a given list 
    import scala.collection.immutable._
      
    // Creating object 
    object GFG
        // Main method 
        def main(args:Array[String]) 
        
            // Creating and initializing immutable lists 
            val mylist: List[String] = List("Geeks", "For"
                                    "geeks", "is", "best"
          
            // Display the last value of mylist
            println("Last element is: " + mylist.last)

    // Scala program to find the last element of a given list
    // using for loop 
    import scala.collection.immutable._
      
    // Creating object 
    object GFG
        // Main method 
        def main(args:Array[String]) 
        
            // Creating and initializing immutable lists 
            val mylist: List[String] = List("Geeks", "For"
                                            "geeks", "is",
                                    "a", "fabulous", "portal")
      
            // Display the last value of mylist using for loop 
            for(element<-mylist.last) 
            
                print(element)

    // Scala program to find the last element of a given list
    // using foreach loop 
    import scala.collection.immutable._
      
    // Creating object 
    object GFG
          
        // Main method 
        def main(args:Array[String]) 
        
            // Creating and initializing immutable lists 
            val mylist = List(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
              
              
            print("Original list is: ")
            // Display the value of mylist using for loop 
            mylist.foreach{x:Int => print(x + " ") }
              
            // calling last function
            println("\nLast element is: " + mylist.last)
        

    chevron_right

    
    

    Output:

    Original list is: 1 2 3 4 5 6 
    Last element is: 6
