I believe this post How to find whether the variable is discrete or continuous where appropriate? is on topic. The subject is inherently statistical and identifying whether variables are discrete or continuous (and further details about their type) is not inherently a programming issue (for all that the user wants to implement it in R).
There are other grounds for concern about it -- the question could be clearer and I think may be a partial duplicate, but I don't see how it fails our criteria for on-topicness:
if it needs statistical expertise to understand or answer, ask it here
The user doesn't have an algorithm ready that they're seeking to implement.
I think this user needs statistical expertise to get a good answer to this question. Why are we closing it as off topic?
