please what could the solution to this question

Now override new. Create a new int instance from whatever is passed in as arguments and keyword arguments. Return that instance.

You should remove the pass.

class Double(int):
   def __new__(*args,**kwargs):

You've removed the "pass", but you still need to do the other parts of the instructions:

  • Create a new int instance ...
  • and then ... Return that instance.

First create the int instance

self = int.__new__(*args, *kwargs)

Then return the instance

return self

this isn't quite right either
