    What properties do they use here to show that V(N|λ) = λ and that E(N|λ) = λ? :(

    Nope

    Here's the proof:

    P[X>s+t|X>t] = P[(X>s+t)∩(X>t)]P[X>t]
    = P[X>s+t]P[X>t] (This is true because if x>s+t, then it is surely greater than just t).
    = e^(-λ(s+t))e^(-λt)
    = e^(-λs)
    = P[X>s] :)...
