    about exactly

    1. My work is done exactly in 10 minutes.
    2. I have done my work exactly in 10 minutes.
    3. I did my work exactly in 10 minutes.
    4. I spent exactly thirty minutes doing my work.



    • Are all sentences correct?
    • and is the place of ''exactly'' correct as well?


    • I just want to tell exact time,

    and if I would tell ''my work was exactly done in 10 minutes'' it means ''my work was almost done in 10 minutes''

    • Am I right?

    If you say "My work was exactly done..." it means that you did your work precisely, accurately. If you say "My work was done in exactly X time", it means that you completed your work in precisely that time, no more, no less.
