    Try to set aside some time each day for exercise. - You can use "put" in place of "set" in this sentence. It's just as good and correct.


    a room that had been set aside for visitors - You can use "put" here as well, and it is just as correct, but "set" sounds better to me in this phrase. I like it better with "set".
