can anyone draw this up on solidworks and use the flex
Not anyone....a select few
But you could also do it with multibodies and a loft. What does your teacher want you to do?
Have you seen this earlier posting?
the teacher doesn't want me to do anything I just want to learn flex i am teaching myself and if you can do this with Flex you can draw this with one sketch
Attach the *.sldprt file of your attempt here.
Where did you get your original image - do you have a citation?
I created this part with Loft, not Flex.
I got the image from Pinterest and it will let me Attach the *.sldprt file
You must Reply to original (not bell notification) and select Advanced Editor.
You must try self. Play with options look look at the result of the changes, its the best solutions for learn,
I thought that CADKING knows that.
here it is
No one knows everything about these programs
Apparently not permitted to mention those names in the same sentence. Hope I didn't offend Deepak...

Paul wasn't trying to do the work for you. He was showing you that it can be done.
Now that you know that it can be done, you should be able to do it with a few trial and errors.
Flex is a tricky thing to wrap your head around. It took me about 30-40 tried to begin to understand it.
I know you seem to try flex on it but sometimes that might not be the right tool. Have you tried loft?
Paul, you forget about "Hard Edges" options
Sorry.. I'm wrong.
As wrote Deepak Gupta and before Craig Schultz for this model you must use Loft command. Flex give you similar but other geometry
this is not my work I am disable I am just trying to learn this on my own and understand the flex better and if it can be done why hasn't anyone been able to do it yet
Understood. Personally, I don't know if flex is the right tool for this job or not. If I was pressed for time, I would probably do it with a loft, simply because I am not well versed in the flex tool. But if I had some time, I would probably try a whole bunch of things.
One thing you might want to try (to take a page out of Alin's book), is to run a challenge, like one of these:
SWPUC - SOLIDWORKS Power User Challenges
That way, people are likely to try out different ways. We tend to get a lot of people asking us to do their school work for them. So when someone asks us to model something for them, we tend to be a little "gun shy" and specifically NOT do the work, but show that it is possible while waiting for a model from the original asker. So this might be the single biggest reason why you haven't seen someone come up with the exact model that you posted.

Look above your post
I think so it is nothing to do with the Flex command.
Here is the best that I can do with the flex command. Not really ideal.
Starting out with this:
The key to offsettting the flex was in the Triad area:
