    Exact vs exactly

    "This sentence should exactly be same as the previous sentence".

    "This sentence is exact the same as the previous one".

    Please check. Do we need to use " Exact" only or "Exactly" can be used as well? What's the difference between both?

    Re: Exact vs exactly

    How about this. "This sentence is exact same as the previous sentence". A native speaker said it.

    Re: Exact vs exactly

    That's wrong, too.

    You can use 'exact same', but followed by a noun.

    'He wrote the exact same sentence as I did'.
