Dans un vase à côté du lit

I question why "pres" was marked incorrect in this exercise. As I understand it, "à côté de" means exactly next to, whereas in placing a vase I would be putting it near the bed, probably on a bedside table or similar, so more correctly it would be "pres du lit"?

Bonjour Gilberts,

Have a look at the link here: https://kwiziq.learnfrenchwithalexa.com/questions/view/what-s-the-difference-between-a-cote-de-and-pres-de

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
