I think that is what the OP would essentially be doing.   Address claim 1, and in addressing claims 2 - 5 for 103, that would include claim 1 as well, because, well, they depend from 1.   So, method 1 would address this concern.  I do not think addressing claim 1 only, for novelty and non-obvious is a good idea, as I indicated above.

Thank you all for your answers.
Before discussion, let's make the OA more detailed.
Claim 1 is rejected under 102(e) by reference A;
Claim 2 (dependent from claim 1) is rejected under 103(a) over reference A in view of  reference B.
Claim 3 (dependent from claim 1) is rejected under 103(a) over reference A in view of  reference C.
if we choose the second way to response to the OA, how to argue that claim 1 is unobvious? Should we assert the following four?
(1) claim 1 is unobvious over reference A;
(2) claim 1 is unobvious over reference A in view of  B;
(3) claim 1 is unobvious over reference A in view of  C;
(4) claim 1 is unobvious over reference A, B in view of  C?
or just the forth is ok?
 
Thanks
 
Wade

First:  
 
Are you sure the examiner is correct?
 
Does reference A convey the exact information as stated in the Office Action?

hello biopico
yes, the examiner is correct, and reference A convey the exact information.
 
Beside this, how do we to respons if the examiner is incorrect and the reference A doesn't convey the exact information?
