Gregory gives the following approximation for expected exposure (EE) when the mark-tomarket
(MtM) is characterized by a normal distribution with zero mean:Assume an exposure is normally distributed with zero mean and volatility of 9.0% per annum. If
there are 250 trading days, which is nearest to the expected exposure (EE) at the end of ten
(10) days?
a) 0.72%
b) 1.45%
c) 3.60%
d) 7.18%
0.72% = 0.4*9.0%*sqrt(10/250)

How did they get .4

It seems you haven't copied the entire question. If you look at the question carefully, there is an approximation for Expected Exposure given in the question:
EE = 0.4* Volatility*sqr root (T)

Hence the value of 0.4 is given in the question itself.
