I chose option (B) but didn't realize that there is a better option than this, that is option (D)

Presenters at the seminar, one who is blind, will demonstrate adaptive equipment that allows visually impaired people to use computers.

(A) one who
(B) one of them who
(C) and one of them who
(D) one of whom
(E) one of which

Quick test for who and whom is to ask what does the who or whom refer to? It refers to the presenters which is plural. So, we would normally use "them" to refer to the presenters. Thus we can straight away rule out A, B and C. E is absurd because "which" is used to refer to objects/animals (?).

I went for B... But after going through the thread... I can say D is the right one... Subject of the sentence therefore whom.

IMO D. Initially, I confused with A because the existence of 'whom'. But I can rephrase D is: one of presenters is blind. Presenter cannot replace by who. So, whom is needed here.

D because "one of them who is blind " indicate that this specific person will demonstrate which is not the case.

I want verification of my analysis .I approcached the sentence as under :

1. Understood the meaning that among the presenters , there is one person who is blind and he will demonstrate..
2.Broke the sentence into clauses:

C1:Presenters at the seminar, one
C2:who is blind,
C1 (contd):will demonstrate adaptive equipment
C3: that allows visually impaired people to use computers.

2. Clause 1 doest not make one will demonstrate .....

3. Applied rule that after preposition only object pronoun whom can come , so eliminated B, C.
4.Applied rule which can refer only inanimate objects.Hence eliminated ans E

4. Arrived at answer D.


Doubt:

1. Can which refer to animals ?/ As per my current understanding that and which can only refer to inanimate objects.
Hence, they cannot refer to animals.
2.Who / Whom can refer to only human being ? Can they refer to animals ?As per my current understanding who and whom can refer to both animals and human beings.
3.Is one 'a pronoun?
