removing brake lines question

hello, in the TIS manual it says to compress the clutch pedal and place a holder there to prevent oil from emerging from the expansion tank , and to prevent air from entering, but is that a typo, and do they mean the brake pedal?

the illustration shows the brake pedal, but the text says clutch pedal

Brake and clutch share the same reservoir.

When the pedals are up at rest, there's an open path from the common reservoir through the brake master cylinder to the calipers and a separate one from the same reservoir through the clutch master cylinder to the clutch slave cylinder. If you're opening up the brake lines, hold the brake pedal down to cut off the flow. If you're opening the clutch, hold the clutch pedal down.

To answer the original question, there's a typo in the instructions. They meant brake pedal.
