With the word exactly in place, statement 9 would be true.
Now if the word exactly is not there, what is the difference?
Example:
"three of these 10 statements are false". Can be very well be interpreted as there are only 3 false statements not more not less. Does it mean "replace Exactly with Atleast". In this case there may be other possible answers
