    Lightbulb directly or exactly?

    Hi Here is my question:
    Can I say: Donors are assured that the money they contribute goes exactly to the social program.

    The answer key is 'directly', but I think 'exactly' is okay. Am I right?

    Re: directly or exactly?


    What makes you think that exactly could be used in place of directly?
