sql server replication

I need to setup replication in standard edition.

my requirement is:
 1. I have server A .it contains 10 tables (Like A1,A2,A3.....A10).
2. i have another server B. it is backup of server A but it contains only 5 tables, coz i need to replicate only 5 tables (table names like A1,A2..A5).

I want to replicate changes from server A to B (only 5 tables not all 10 tables).

1. Is it possible in replication (The replication method may be merge/snapshot/transactional.)?
2. Is it possible in Standard edition?

please respond ASAP.

Yes it's possible.

You decide what frequency you want the data replicated (For near-instant, use Transactional), then create your publication and then create a subscriber (Target) and away you go.

Yes it's possible in Standard.
