its the blind person who would demonstrate adaptive equipment and not the presenters from what I understand. though D looks obvious, there could be more to it. the 'and' in C might take home the point that demonstration is actually done by the blind person and not any other presenter. However I cant seem to be sure. I might go with C in the exam.
What do you guys think ?

Vote for D,

idiom, never heard of 'one of them who is ', usually 'one of them is....'

D

Requires object pronoun "whom" not the subject pronoun who.

one of which is just wrong, which cannot refer to people.

Hi Guys,
I am little lost in here, can someone please explain why answer B, one of them who is incorrect.
I agree with the explanation that we need to use object pronoun here and I guess them is also object pronoun so B should be just fine.

IMO D

With option C, it will lead to sentence fragmentation.
"Presenters at the seminar, and one of them who is blind, will demonstrate adaptive equipment that allows visually impaired people to use computers.

If we go with your above explanation, the part before "and" will lead to sentence fragmentation. We don't know what "Presenters at the seminar" are going to do ?

Also, here comma has been used here, which means this is a non-restrictive clause, telling us something about Presenters. So, intended meaning is that the Presenters are going to take the action.

May be option B has no grammatical error. But in GMAT, its not only about grammatical error, its also that sentence should be concise, clear in meaning and less wordy. And, thats why D wins over B.

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


D
A - one cannot refer to a plural noun
C - and make it seem like one is another subject
E - which - cannot refer to people
D is more concise than B

IMO “one who is blind” is like saying there is only one blind person out of the total presenters and “one of whom is blind” is like saying that there could be more than one blind person in the group.

This sentence may not require pin pointing a blind person out of all total presenters to demonstrate adaptive equipment that allows visually impaired people to use computers. Any blind person would do. Hence D could be the correct choice.

My question is, no matter which option we go for, dont we seem to be modifying the "seminar" and not "presenters"? what about "modifier should touch the subject"?

D sounds better but B should be the correct.

you are correct, if the antecedent is the object then use WHOM
but here the antecedent is the Subject, therefore it should be WHO....

any thoughts?

I chose B. Can anyone explain y do we need the object form 'whom'.. As I understan from the sentence, the blind person demonstrates... So the performer of the action is the subject. Therefore, I went with option B.

Pls can someone explain where I am goin wrong...

I would assume that the answer to this lies in the choice that you make, bearing in mind the ultimate intent of the sentence. In choosing option D "on of whom", you're referring to people (in this case the presenters).

If you chose "one of which", you're making a reference to the seminar and that wouldn't be correct because you're implying, in effect, that the seminar is blind.

I think "one of whom" is modifying the phrase "Presenters at the seminar" not "seminar" by itself, since it is separated by a comma, so there are no modifying issues here. yes/no?

I go with D too. Narrowed it down to B or D. D seems better but I am still confused for B. Can anyone explain why B is wrong.

I broke it down to B or D and chose B because of the exact reason. I was under the impression "Presenters" was the subject doing the action.

D sounds better but I went with B for the grammatical reason. Any thoughts?
