recently I sat for an exam where I was asked this question -
Concurrence means all of the following except:
A. Agreement B. Accord C. Consensus D. Coincidence E. Harmony
What could be the correct answer ? I opted for D. Coincidence. Was I right ?

Yes the word Harmony is a synonym for Concurrence. But coincidence is synonym for Accord or Agreement.And Concurrence means Agreement too. So there is a conflict .
Yes you are right. Coincidence is something that happens accidentally. Without your knowledge.
