Can't understand this

    return word

Here's my solution:

def disemvowel(word):
    test = ["a", "e", "i", "o", "u"]
    for letter in word:
        if letter.lower() in test:
            word = word.replace(letter, "")

    return word

I have created a for loop that goes through the letters of the word, then it makes the letter lower case so that it can be compared with the variable test and its contents. If the letter is a vowel, it is then replaced with an empty string.

Hope this helps
