hook size confusion

I'm starting a pattern which simply states to use a 2.00 mm hook.

I do own all the numbered hooks from 0-10, but some time ago I thought my hooks were safely stashed, only to find out later that they weren't. The kids got into them and scattered them everywhere. I'm now missing numbers 2-6 and somewhere in there should be that 2.00 mm hook. I did find another hook with the label 2.00 mm Bernet B. It looks big to me- about the same size as my number 1/2.75 mm hook. Of course, the pattern does not specify that I should use a number hook nor a letter hook, just 2.00 mm. Which hook should I use? Is it possible to buy one of the number hooks without the other 9?
