Undefined method `header_row?' for ["A", nil]:Array (NoMethodError)

Can anyone tell me why I am getting the error ?

require 'csv'

_output_file_path =
File.expand_path('output.csv',File.dirname(__FILE__))

hash = { 'A' => [ 'v', 'x', 'y' , 'z' ] ,
           'B' => [ 'm', 'n' , 'o' ] ,
           'C' => [ 'i', 'j' , 'k' , 'l', 'm', 'n' , 'o' ]
       }

headers = hash.keys
csv_row = CSV::Row.new(headers,[],true)
csv_table = CSV::Table.new(csv_row)

headers.each do |col_name|
  csv_table[col_name] = hash[col_name]
end

p csv_table.to_csv
# ~> /home/kirti/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p0/lib/ruby/2.0.0/csv.rb:726:in

I have fixed the error. But csv_table not showing any data .

require 'csv'

_output_file_path =
File.expand_path('output.csv',File.dirname(__FILE__))

hash = { 'A' => [ 'v', 'x', 'y' , 'z' ] ,
           'B' => [ 'm', 'n' , 'o' ] ,
           'C' => [ 'i', 'j' , 'k' , 'l', 'm', 'n' , 'o' ]
       }

headers = hash.keys
csv_row = CSV::Row.new(headers,[],true)
csv_table = CSV::Table.new([csv_row])
csv_table.delete(1)
headers.each do |col_name|
  csv_table[col_name] = hash[col_name]
end
csv_table.to_csv
# => "A,B,C\n"

What wrong I did here ?

Dear Arup,

Look at http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.1.0/libdoc/csv/rdoc/CSV/Table.html#method-i-5B-5D

"Columns are returned as an Array of values. Altering that Array has
no effect on the table."

headers.each do |col_name|
  p csv_table[col_name].class # Add this line
  csv_table[col_name] = hash[col_name]
end

And you will see:
Array
Array
Array

"Columns are returned as an Array of values. Altering that Array has

But I am using the method `#[]=`
(http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.1.0/libdoc/csv/rdoc/CSV/Table.html#method-i-5B-5D-3D
) not `#[]`.

In the default mixed mode, this method **assigns rows for index access
and columns for header access.**
