    Number 3: subject: ellos, so you would have to use "su" or "sus."

    Since it is modifying "libro" (singular), it would be "su."

    (Though it is a strange sentence. I think it is saying they all have one book).

    4. With nosotros, use nuestro.
    Other 2 look good.

    P.S. This may not make a lot of sense to you but the "possessor" has nothing to do with the gender of the possessive adjective. It MUST have the same number (singular/plural) and gender (masculine/feminine) as the noun modified.

    Later this will become clearer, perhaps, when you get to another way to show possession = with the definite article.

    1. Es el libro de mí (preposition pronoun at the end)
    2. Son los libros de ella.
    3. Es el libro de ellos.
    4. Es el libro de nosotros.

    When you get to prepositional pronouns, I'll be happy to compare for you:
    1. subject pronouns
    2. possessive pronouns
    3. prepositional pronouns
