Use of "medio" vs "el mitad do"

Se comió ________ bocadillo. He ate half the sandwich.

 

medio was the correct answer. I put "el mitad de" which was marked wrong. 

EDIT: Maybe because I used "de" instead of "del"? Now it is being marked correct with that answer. If this is the case, shouldn't it show me that "el mitad del" is the correct answer? This is confusing.

Hola Janet

It would have been correct with "la mitad del" but not el mitad de.

Yes, la mitad del, sorry, I knew that :) ... but my question remains, why doesn't the correct answer give "la mitad del"? It only shows "medio" as a possible correct answer.

Hi Janet

I see - I checked and the system is admitting "la mitad del" as one of the possible correct answers. It should say it is correct unless you used "de", not "del".
