Of the following six statements, which are true and which are false?

1. There are no false statements in this card.

2. There is exactly one false statement in this card.

3. There are exactly two false statements in this card.

4. There are exactly three false statements in this card.

5. There are exactly four false statements in this card.

6. There are exactly five false statements in this card

I feel like I must be overanalyzing this one
