Because methods returns the list of methods that are accessible for
the object. In the case of the singleton class, it's the instance of
the class (the object) for which you call the method "test". It's the
same thing as with regular classes:

irb(main):001:0> class A
irb(main):002:1> def test
irb(main):003:2> "test"
irb(main):004:2> end
irb(main):005:1> end
=> nil
irb(main):006:0> A.methods.grep(/test/)
=> []
irb(main):007:0> A.instance_methods.grep(/test/)
=> ["test"]
irb(main):008:0> a = A.new
=> #<A:0xb74d2274>
irb(main):009:0> a.methods.grep(/test/)
=> ["test"]
