    In Scala, there is no direct equivalent to static members as found in languages like Java. Instead, Scala uses companion objects, singleton objects, and other language features to achieve similar functionality. Here are a few alternatives to static members in Scala:

    Companion Objects: In Scala, you can define a companion object for a class with the same name as the class. The companion object can access private members of the class and provides a way to encapsulate shared behavior and data related to the class. You can use companion objects to define factory methods, shared constants, and other utility methods.

    Singleton Objects: A singleton object is an object that has only one instance. It can be thought of as a replacement for static members in Scala. You can define methods and fields within a singleton object, and these can be accessed without creating an instance of the object. 

    Package-Level Members: Scala allows you to define methods and variables directly at the package level. These members can be accessed from any class or object within the same package without needing an instance.
