    the exact time that/when?

    1. Matthew even tells us the exact time that this happened.
    2. Matthew even tells us the exact time when this happened.
    3. Matthew even tells us the exact time at which this happened.
    #1 is supposed to be correct. How about the acceptability of #2 and #3?

    I don't have a problem with any of them. You will also hear "Matthew even tells us the exact time this happened".
