    It looks like you have elements on different sketches. (Circles on one, lines on others.)

    If you find public doc TRIAL-1-Copy, you'll see I've:-

    (1) Added an additional sketch called "Sketch Full"
    (2) Used the "use" command to project your circles onto it.
    (3) Added new lines that are coincident and tangential to the circles.

    ...and this has formed a face.

    Hope that helps,

    But actually this should have been done all in ONE sketch not 3 or 4
