A: I'm looking for a jacket.
B: What size do you want?
A: Small. 1)
B: What color would you like?
A: Red. 2)
1) I want small.
I want a small.
I want a small size.
I want a small-size jacket.
I want a small-sized jacket.
(Can we use all these expressions?)
Are these the full forms of 1) in the dialogue?
2) I would like red.
I want read.
I want the color red.
Does 2) in the dialogue mean these?

As for #1, the 2nd and the 4th are not as good as the other 3. However, you could hear them.
#1 they are all fine.
---Thank you. What about #2?

2) When offered a choice of colors, either the first or third are fine.
If the second choice is not a typo, it does not apply. If it is supposed to be "red," then it is also fine.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
