2. --¿Les traemos los recuerdos (a ellos) hoy?
--No, les vamos a traer los recuerdos mañana.

3. --¿Nos trae Luis Enrique las calculadoras hoy?
--No, nos va a traer las calculadoras mañana.

4. --¿Te traigo los anteojos de sol mañana?
--No, te voy los anteojos de son hoy.

5. --¿Le traen sus padres el pasaporte (a él) hoy?
--No, le traen el pasaporte mañana.

You will find that learning and using indirect and direct object pronouns in Spanish can be very tricky for English speakers...I know it was for me. Keep at it though, and soon you will become adjusted to the logic of Spanish in regards to their usage. Good luck.

Also, just a reminder when using traer and llevar: you can only traer something to the place where you are located, otherwise you llevar it. (I used to make this mistake all of the time because I was translating the English version of the sentences)
¿Me puedes traer mis libros?
Sí, te voy a llevarlos esta noche.

We use the verb bring a lot more loosely in English.

In other exercises, you've been careful to write complete sentences for your responses, which meant that the subject had to be repeated. In these sentences, the subject was omitted in your responses. For instance, the subject in #3 is Luis Enrique, but you didn't place his name in the response. You opted to use a subject pronoun instead (which is also omitted). It doesn't matter whether you repeat the subject or not, because the pronoun (even though it is omitted) takes its place. I only mentioned this because it seems unusual for this exercise to not require a repeated subject. That's all.
