       Your detail explanation will be expected? Thanks!

Answer
Rather than answer the individual cases, let me set out the principles.

The sequence is important.

Consider the striker first, noting that he cannot "run"

If the ball is only handled by the keeper and if it is
     a fair ball (or a Wide) he can be stumped.
     a No Ball, he cannot be Run Out because he is not "running"

If the ball is handled by any other fielder, then he is Run Out irrespective of fairness if delivery.

Only then do we need to consider the runner.
If he is out of his ground, then Run Out.

Does that make it clear?
