TOEIC Listening exercise question #1 (permalink) Fri Jun 18, 2010 19:35 pm   TOEIC Listening exercise question

Hi,

I didn't find more suitable category to ask this question, so I decided to write it here.

Could you explain why correct answer at exercise #1 ( 1. What is being advertised? ) is 'A sleep aide'. It does not make sense, considering that AIDE means:

'a person whose job is to help someone important, such as a member of a government or a military officer of high rank '. Had it been 'AID' then it would be OK.

Please enlighten me ;-)

It's probably a mistake. I think it should be 'aid' (something that helps; an object, device, or technique that makes something easier to do) rather than 'aide' (someone who helps; an assistant to someone who has an important job)
