code

# Initializing some arrays of elements
Array1 = ["a", "b", "c", "d"]
Array2 = []
Array3 = [1]
Array4 = [1, 2]
Array5 = ["Ram", "Geeta", "Shita"]
  
# Calling reverse! function
A = Array1.reverse!
B = Array2.reverse!
C = Array3.reverse!
D = Array4.reverse!
E = Array5.reverse!
  
# Printing the same input array
# with reversed elements
puts "#{A}"
puts "#{B}"
puts "#{C}"
puts "#{D}"
puts "#{E}"

# Initializing some arrays of elements
Array1 = ["a", "b", "c", "d"]
Array2 = []

Array4 = [1, 2]
Array5 = ["Ram", "Geeta", "Shita"]
  
# Calling reverse! function
A = Array1.reverse!
B = Array2.reverse!
C = Array3.reverse!
D = Array4.reverse!
E = Array5.reverse!
  
# Prining original input array 
# after calling reverse! function
puts "#{Array1}"
puts "#{Array2}"
puts "#{Array3}"
puts "#{Array4}"
puts "#{Array5}"

Output:

["d", "c", "b", "a"]
[]
[1]
[2, 1]
["Shita", "Geeta", "Ram"]

Note: Difference between reverse and reverse! functions is that reverse function reverses the input array elements into another array and keep the input array as it is but the reverse! function reverses the input array into the same input array.
