### HideShow timer Statistics

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

(B) or (D)? Why?

Highlight below to see OA.
The subject, presenters, must be followed by a limiting appositive _ such as one of whom, that identifies an individual from among a larger group. Choice D is best: one of whom best serves an appositive to the subject,
presenters, because the phrase means "one from among several or many." Choice A, one who, is unacceptable because one who cannot refer to the plural presenters. Choices B and C are ungrammatical
because who competes with one as the subject of is. Choice E employs which, a relative pronoun that does not
refer to people (presenters), but only to things.

D sounded best to me. I then checked the OA.
It was right too. I'll read the explanation now.

I don't like choice D here. I would still go with B unless somebody comes up with a better explanation

whom usually is an object form of him. Hence can't be used here as it makes it a singular pronoun. We need they here because it can clearly refer to presenters.

I agree with gayathri's explaination. But if someone can explain the use of "whom", that would be nice.

Praveen, I had come across this sentence else where and I had selected â€˜Bâ€™ for the same exact reason that you had mentioned but later on I realised I was wrong. This is my interpretation of the sentence â€“ â€˜Bâ€™ has 2 pronouns an object and a subject pronoun, which can be replaced with one object pronoun â€˜whomâ€™ there by making â€˜Bâ€™ wordy and moreover since it says â€˜one ofâ€™, which refers to one from a group I guess â€˜one of whomâ€™ gives out the same meaning as â€˜Bâ€™.

Explains who vs whom pretty well.

(who, he, they) (whom, him, them)

In this statement, you are trying to say

one of the presenters is blind. (ie: one of them is blind.)

So, you can use choice D.

In choice B, what does the does "is" go with "who" or "them" ?
