This question stems from a few SC questions I've seen out there...

On the pattern "one of the X that/who" and that it is followed by a plural verb... does "one of the X WHICH" still follow this pattern, or is that invalid for some reason? I haven't seen "which" used in this context as the correct answer, yet it often sticks out as what would be proper (maybe only in my mind :? ). Anyone have any insight on this?

If I have understood your question properly, you want to confirm whether "one of the X that/who" and "one of the X WHICH" follow same subject-verb agreement.

Consider following examples:

1. Tom is one of the hundreds of students who choose to take job oriented courses after graduating from high school.
2. India is one of the few countries which are well-known for their culture.
