She happened to be out when we called. 請問此句"happened to"可以替換成"by chance"嗎？如果可以要怎麼改？ 謝謝?

happened to = 碰巧 / 剛好
by chance = 碰巧 / 偶然地
因此, "happened to" 與 "by chance" 意思相若, 故絕大部份情況下, 都可以互換！
如 以上句子 :-
She happened to be out when we called.
≡ She was out by chance when we called.
One more example :-
I happened to meet an old friend at the railway station this morning.
I met an old friend by chance at the railway station this morning.
