Hi,

'Exact' has the sense of 'precise' and in this sentence means the very place that we should have discussed beforehand. 'Accurate' suggests that something for example has been calculated properly as in: accurate figures/clocks/ and also according to what is correct as in: accurate information.

Why can't the right answer be "correct" ?
