may help you . You can use the string.start_with?(arg) method. http://apidock.com/ruby/String/start_with%3F
puts "What word starts with the letter 'A'?"  
ans = gets.chomp                    # => 'apple'
"Correct!" if ans.start_with?('a')  # => true

this will help I have a string "teststring". I want to find first non-recurring character in Ruby. , You could write:
str = 'teststring'

arr = str.chars
(arr - (arr.difference(arr.uniq))).first
  #= "e"
a = [1,2,3,4,3,2,2,4]
b = [2,3,4,4,4]

a     -      b #=> [1]
a.difference b #=> [1, 3, 2, 2]
arr - arr.difference(arr.uniq)

like below fixes the issue The error comes from the fact you haven't closed the range block with an end. But there are other points. I suggest you to try something like this:
def nearby_az(str)
  list = Array.new
  pos = -1
  str.each_char do |c|
    pos = pos + 1
    if (c == 'a') then
def nearby_az(str)
  list = Array.new
  nstr = str.each_char.to_a
  nstr.each_index do |i|
    if (nstr[i] == 'a') then
puts nearby_az("asdfgaqwer")
def nearby_az(string)
  list = []
  for i in 0..(string.length)
    if string[i] == 'a'
