Hi Baris,

You could try one of the following statements:

In[1]:=
lst = {{1., 2.}, {3, 4}, {5/3, -6},
{Indeterminate, Indeterminate}, {E, Pi},
{"Indeterminate", "Indeterminate"},
{2.727, 1.123*10^6}};

In[2]:=
Cases[lst, {_Real, _Real}]

Out[2]=
6
{{1., 2.}, {2.727, 1.123 10 }}

In[3]:=
Cases[lst, {_?NumberQ, _?NumberQ}]

Out[3]=
5                       6
{{1., 2.}, {3, 4}, {-, -6}, {2.727, 1.123 10 }}
3

In[4]:=
Cases[lst, {_?NumericQ, _?NumericQ}]

Out[4]=
5                                6
{{1., 2.}, {3, 4}, {-, -6}, {E, Pi}, {2.727, 1.123 10 }}
3
