Newbie Question, Any Advice Appreciated

Please bear through this very newbie question. I plan on buying a road bike for my friend but really can't afford to buy new. As such, I have resorted to Craigslist (please let me know if this is already a questionable move). She is 5'9 and only needs the bike for short commuting purposes (<6 miles) and is by no means an "experienced" rider. Essentially, she will want to go to and from school and work (~5 miles). Here are the most realistic options I have thus seen:

Do any of these seem like reasonable offers? Please reply on this forum or my email at Any advice at all is greatly appreciated, and thank you for bearing through this excruciatingly newbie question.
