How to solve this question?

Im totally confused to find out the solution for this one. Anyone can help? Thanks folks!

trial.py
def add(x, y)
    try:
        a = float(x)  
        b = float(y)
    except ValueError:
        return None
     else:
        return a+b

Try moving your else: to the left to line up with the try and except; and you might also add a colon (:) to the end of your method heading. Your code looks fine otherwise.
