"it" used to refer to "them"
Could you tell me why the person B used "it" to refer to "them" used by person A.
A: "I'll print you a copy and then drop them off."
B: "Make sure you drop it off before five because I have to leave early."
Thank you for your help in advance.
Re: "it" used to refer to "them"
What I don't understand is why Person A used "them". He clearly says that he is going to print a copy for Person B and then take that copy to Person B. Consequently, it should read:

If Person A is going to make a copy and then deliver both the copy and the original to Person B, then "them" should be used in both sentences.
