This part requires four holes to be added. The first one is a flat bottom hole, the next two run completely through the part, and the final one is a threaded hole. While creating the holes I'll use both the Placed method and the Sketched method so that you can see how each work. They both create identical geometry so it's up to you as the designer to determine which you prefer.
