I have four banana plants here. Would appreciate if someone here could ID what they are. Three of them I got from K-Mart. I think the last one is a Mysore I bought
from the nursery, but I'm not so sure now because I've been switching plants around my yard. Thanks so much for your help.

No 3 is most likely in the Cavendish family.
No 4 could possibly be a Zebrina.

The others are hard to tell.

4 could also be a Bordelon but with that much red splotching on the top, it's probably a Zebrina like Jon says. If it grows much taller than 5-6' or so before blooming, consider the chance that it's a Bordelon.

I don't know what number 1 is. I have number 2 but I don't know what it is, and the number 3 looks like a dwarf cavendish. I know exactly what number 4 is it is a rowe red because it looks exactly like the one I have, the rowe red gets to about 5-7 feet.
