CAT5 vs CAT5e

I understand the main difference between CAT5 and CAT5e are:
1. CAT 5 - Uses two UTP pairs and supports 100 Mbps
2. CAT 5e - Uses four UTP pairs and can transfer up to 1 Gbps.

I have taken some practice exams and there seem to be some conflicting information about these two cables. One exam claims CAT 5 supports 1 Gbps??

Can someone verify??
