    Attic

    A teacher told me it is "Adic", we pronounce (tt) = (d)

    But another one told me it its "Aric", We pronounce (tt) = (r)

    Would you mind helping me, please?

    You will not be wrong if you pronounce it this way.

    This does not make sense to me.

    I suppose it depends on the way you pronounce your "d" and your "r". My "r" has my tongue in a way different place than the "tt" from attic, but if you pronounce your "r" as a very soft "d" with your tongue touching just behind the top front teeth, it might be close... Still, go with the guy who said "adic".

    'Adic' is very American. In British English it's 'Attic'.
