How many of the following probability statements can be obtained using this table (assuming correct computations are carried out):

i.$P(Z<.5)$ where $Z$ is an exponential random variable with mean$=1$ and variance$=1$.

ii.$P(X>.4)$ where $X$ is a standard normal random variable.

iii.$P(0< X< .55)$ where $X$ is a standard normal random variable.

iv.$P(X< 2)$ where $X$ has mean$=0$ and variance$=1$.

v.$P(X<-1)$ where $X$ is a Normal random variable with mean=$1$ and variance$=1$.
