It's from a video named "English for job interview" on YouTube.

Interviewer: Thanks for being patient. Things are quite busy here right now.
Interviewee: It's no problem.

Can I use following sentences in the given context and what do they mean?
1. That's not a problem.
2. It's not a problem.
3. That's no problem.

    "It" is better than "that" here. "It" means the topic being discussed.

    "That" is used for pointing out things. Saying "that is not a problem" could mean that other things are a problem (this room is too cold, etc.)

    "It's no problem" and "It's not a problem" mean the same.
