    There's an extra ; in there which is a mistake. The important thing to know here is that the ! and ? are meaningless and part of the actual method names. The only two symbols that do anything in there are : which means that the next word is a symbol, and & which turns the symbol into a proc / method reference.

    ! is idiomatic for a method which is destructive on its receiver, and ? means a boolean method. Neither of them are technically required though.

    Looks like a git merge gone wrong to me. Two developers saw the bug at a similar time - the first thought to use the “merge” function to combine the transfer groups, the other thought to do it manually.

    No doubt the ever-helpful IDE “helped” with the conflict resolution by suggesting “why not keep both?”
