According to the international investment memorandum recently signed in Geneva, France is one of the 4 European nations planning to provide fewer tax incentives for foreign investment in production of heavy industrial machinery.

a) planning to provide fewer
b) planning to provide less
c) planning on providing fewer
d) which is planning on providing fewer
e) that is planning to provide less

I got this one correct, however, when I was looking at the usage of "France is one of the 4 European nations" construction, I was curious to find more examples of this kind. Does anybody have questions on this topic? Even a link on this topic will help.

tax incentives are countable. B & E out.

D is wrong because it uses which in an incorrect way

Between A & C, take the infinitive over on. A

What are you looking for in the France is one of the 4 European nations construct? I did not understand what you were in search of exactly.

Right on.... OA is (A)

I was looking for sentences or rules governing constructions like "x is one of the many" types.... I sometimes get confused about the subject of the sentence (singular or plural).
