Split the line:

def amethod localvar = 10 puts( localvar )

Then run via:

irb variables.rb

Per the error messages, and my post above, you need to split your def lines.

Can you please paste the text of you command windows, into a CODE block, or alternatively past the screen grabs into Paint, save as a jpg or png, and upload directly (the results will be visible on page), as it's a pain to have to download, scan for viruses and open a Word document, and a real pain when you only have a phone / tablet to hand.
Quack!!!!!!! quite strange------------still the no error no output

localvar ="hello"
globalvar ="goodbye"

def amethod
localvar = 10
puts( localvar )
puts( globalvar )
end

def anotherMethod
localvar = 500
globalvar ="bonjour"
puts( localvar )
puts( globalvar )
end
