i do not understand what this means Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory @ rb_sysopen - 1

this does not make sense to me if you can help me please help. Thank you !

loop.rb
  def get_answer()
    loop do 
  puts "enter a guess to exit the loop"
answer = gets.chomp
   if answer == "e"

     break 
   end 

 end
end
get_answer()

You are overcomplicating the challenge. The instructions state "Assume get_answer() is already written" and the comment above your work states "Assume get_answer() is already defined". So you don't need to define get_answer() yourself. Just do as the challenge asks and nothing more.

In a loop:

  • Assign the value of the get_answer() method to answer
  • Break if answer is equal to "e"

You already have the second one. Just remove any extra code and address the first one.
