Hello. I'll be grateful for your help.
1)Is the sentence OK: "The terms of the new contract were being discussed exactly when he called" (I mean, is the word "exactly" OK here?)
2)Is the word order correct in the sentence: "The contract at this time is being discussed."?
3)Is the sentence correct: "They were discussing the contract right then."?
Thank you very much for all your help.

    1. It's OK. I'd either omit it or use the word "just" in its place.

    2. I'd start out with "At this time, ... " rather than split up the subject and verb with this adverbial phrase.

    3. Yes
