I think I am missing something here, but not sure exactly what is the error

def combiner(lst):
    x = ""
    for i in range(len(lst)):
        if i  isinstance(i,str) and isinstance(j,(float,int):
       return x + int(j)

Looks like you just need to remove the first i after the if statement like this. Also i believe i is going to be a number in range every time so you'll want to replace the i in the loop as lst[i]

if isinstance(lst[i],str) and isinstance(j,(float,int):

Thank you Kyle
