Regexp issues

On line 42, I get an error that there is no function ‘[]’ for
nil:Nilclass… am I just missing something extremely obvious?

You get that error because Regexp#match returns nil if there’s no match.
In
this case, test is set to nil and, obviously, won’t have a [] method.

Your regex does not match the string, so the call to match returns nil.
