Option 2 is incorrect as 'it is only not profitable' is awkward in construction and fails to make the sentence meaningful.
Option 3 is incorrect as 'for them' has an ambiguous subject and also alters the context of the sentence. Present perfect tense (have been) is needed to make the sentence grammatically parallel in construction.
Option 5 is incorrect as 'it doing so' does not make sense. Option 4 unnecessarily uses the adverb 'so'.
