Challege Task part 3

Im not sure where my code is faulty here.

trial.py
 def add(num1, num2) :
    try:
        return(float(num1) + float(num2))    
    except ValueError:
        return None
    else:
        return(float(num1) + float(num2))

:point_right: You just have a typo.

There's apparently a stray space at the beginning in front of "def".

While you should pass just by fixing the typo, you can also make your code more compact by removing everything after the "return None". You don't need the else or the code after it because if the try succeeds, the function will have already returned.
