What do you think about this portion:
the speakers include a number of artists.

I dont think this is correct?
Speakers can not include themselves. or Am I missing something :roll: ?

(A)When referring to people, use "who" or "whom"
(B)"one of whom" correctly refers back to the artists.
(C)"one who" is incorrect because the pronoun is ambiguous. Does it refer to a speaker, an artist , or a third category ?
(D)Same problem as in option C
(E) same problem as in option A
