I don't believe 1 will do it.
Yes on 5. Also 3.
Buffers are weak acid and salt or weak base and salt.
HCN and NaOH can prepare the salt and have HCN left over.
NaCN is the salt HCN for the acid.

1. 5 can be made to a buffer. 3 can be made to a buffer. That means there must be another one since I assume you are keying this into a data base and you must have ALL of the problem right or it is counted wrong. I would look for another one if I were you. By the way, you KNOW 2 can't be one of them.
