Problem Solution:

In this program, we will demonstrate the downto() function. The downto() function returns all the numbers less than equal to the number till the specified number.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to demonstrate the downto() function is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```# Ruby program to demonstrate the
# downto() function

num1 = 5 ;
num2 = -5;

# Prints the number down to 1
num1.downto(1){| i | print i, " "}

print "\n";

# Prints the number down to -10
num2.downto(-10){| i | print i, " "}
```

Output:

```5 4 3 2 1
-5 -6 -7 -8 -9 -10
```
