(i) one x y = x < y
My answer:
Boolean
(ii) two x y = x + y
Real
(iii) three x y = xy
Real

(iv) four x y = x + + y
List
(v) five x y = x ! ! y
An element of List. Eq. (not sure)
(vi) six x y = x = = y
boolean.

(c) In the context of a functional programming language what is a homomorphism?

No idea.
(a) Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of pure functional programming
languages as compared with other sorts of language.

Advantages:
Good programming practise.
Simpler and shorter code.

Anything else?

Disadvantages:
Not flexible.
Strict Syntax. Need to specify type for each function.
Limited libeary.
It only deals with calculation problem.
Anything else?
