I am passing a value to a function and expecting a return type from that function .
But nothing is being printed

Please see this code and suggest

Passing a vlue to a function and expecting some appended data to it ,but its not happening here .

a) Where are you returning value?
b) name is global, why are you passing it as an argument, although you can
c) use script tag within HEAD.
d) why new one(name)?

Beg your pardon, but 'not true' is not true as code I pasted works!!
There is one mistake though, change
<script language="text/javascript">
to
<script type="text/javascript">

Writing Javascript code within body tag may be useful in some circumstances but not recommended or required in general.

The script is not required to be in the head, so it is not true.

I did not say it is required, I recommended it. Everything is not always required, somethings are just better to follow.
