When I execute
apt-get install ruby-full ruby-dev I am getting ruby 2.3. I want ruby 1.9.3.
How do I get it to install ruby 1.9.3?
I'm using Ubuntu 16.0.4 Xenial.

You didn't mentioned which version of Ubuntu you are using, anyway based on the version of ruby you are getting:
2.3 I guess you are running
xenial or something newer that of that.
If you search for the package you are looking for at Ubuntu Packages, you will see that your desired version
1.9.3 only exist in
trusty; so you simply can't install or downgrade it from
1.9.3 because it does not exist in any of your running Ubuntu repositories.
So what you can do is installing it from a third party PPA, the closest thing to your desired version which I found is Brightbox Ruby PPA, they have compiled
1.9.1 for all available Ubuntu versions from
yakkety; They have a source package for
zesty but they didn't compile it yet.
