Add another end at the end of this, maybe this will help.

While not necessary, you'll want to indent your clauses and the bodies of control statements two spaces ( some people use tabs, although I can speak for most ruby developers when I say we prefer spaces ). It will help make your code more readable and help you when debugging to know where you drop in and out of different statements.

puts " Do you want to reverse your name ( yes/no )?"
q2 = gets.chomp

if q2 == "yes"
  puts " Enter your name you want to reverse . "
  namRe = gets.chomp
  namRe.reverse
  puts " As you wish! Your name in lower case #{lowerNo}"
elsif q2 == "no"
  puts " Maybe make it lower case ( lower / no )?"
  lowerNo = gets.chomp
  if lowerNo == "lower"
    lowerNo.downcase!
  elsif lowerNo == "no"
    puts " I will not annoy you anymore"
  else 
    puts " AS you want!"
  end
end
