    "it" "one" and "them"

    (1) If you see any interesting book, buy it for me.

    (2) If you see any interesting book, buy one for me.

    (3) If you see any interesting books, buy one for me.[correct]

    (4) If you see any interesting books, buy some for me.[correct]

    (5) If you see any interesting books, buy them for me.

    I think (3) and (4) are without question correct. What about the rest?
