You need to put all the sketches together in one sketch.

You have 4 sketches in the browser.  You need to have all this in one sketch in order to extrude a solid.

In order to extrude a sketch as a solid, it has to have a closed loop.  You have 4 separate sketches you are trying to connect.  Even if you do get all the curves connected, it will not extrude as a solid.

 

Have you done any of the sketching or part tutorials?

You might start here.

You missed using obvious symmetry about the origin.

Hay i took another look at the extrution that you made and it wasnt exatly even so i went back to 2d sketch and found that the head set was a little different than the sketch it was uneven and off set
