One person in a group replying to the salaam will be sufficient on behalf of the entire group

Q: If someone in the group makes salaam, does everyone have to reply or if one person reply's is it sufficient?

A: If a group of people are present and someone comes to them and makes salaam to all of them, then if one person among them replies to the salaam, it will be sufficient on behalf of all. It will not be necessary for each person in the group to separately reply to the salaam of the person who made salaam to them.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
