I go for B, which refers to the drugs.

One of them is, one which is, one of them which is, and one of them which all sound brutual and D & E seem to refer to the drugs twice.

I will go with B...

I narrowed it down to A&B, and I think we need "which" here

"which" refers to a group in general ---in our case " drugs"

OA?

1. one of them--> cant be used only for people.
2. one of which--correct
3. one which--conjunction missing.
4. one of them which
5. and one of them which


Why one of them is incorrect ...

by the way ...them can be used for both people and things

Wud go for B,

I never heard 'one of them' being used for things too.

'them' is ok with things, but not so sure about 'one of them'..
