    ones

    1-A big red mark was sitting in the middle of smaller ones.

    2-A big red mark was surrounded by smaller ones.

    3-A big red mark was beside a smaller one.



    In these sentences do 'ones' and 'one' refer to red marks or just to marks?]

    I think they are used instead of 'red mark/marks'.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    I read these as meaning "red marks". If that was not the intention, the sentences are poorly constructed.
