    every one/each/all

    Which of these TV shows would you like to see?

    a. I'd like every one of them.
    b. I'd like each of them.
    c. I'd like all of them.

    d. I like every one of them.
    e. I like each of them.
    f. I like all of them.

    In this context, which sentences imply that
    1. I want to see all of them
    and which imply
    2. Any one will do. It doesn't make a difference to me.

    Many thanks.

    Re: every one/each/all

    None of them is correct as a response to "Which ... would you like to see?" The responses need to start with "I would like to see ...". Starting with "I like" simply implies a current preference, suggesting that you have already seen a specific show and you enjoyed it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
