Answer should be D- one of whom

Note the difference between the subjective personal pronouns (pronouns that performs an action) and the objective personal pronouns (pronouns that receive an action. who is subjective pronoun and whom is objective pronoun.

Amardeep

B vs D. I picked up B. what's wrong in that ??

B is unnecessarily lengthy.

C has same problem and "and" in C is not needed.

Hence, D is the appropriate answer.

Amardeep gave good explanation.

Intuitively:

use "who" in relation to "she" or "they" - i.e. subjective case pronoun
use "whom" in relation to "her" or "them" - i.e. objective case pronoun

"C" is too wordy

THerefore, Answer is "D"

Agree with Amrdeep. Just one more question.
What makes "one of ___" object pronoun ?? "one of ____" would be representing one of the presenters, so ist'nt it a subject of the sentense ??

"whom" is referring to a subject, therefore it is objective pronoun - i.e. "whom" by itself is not a subject

The underlined part of the sentence is preceded by a comma. So it has to be a clause. Since the information is not essential it is a non-restrictive clause. Therefore "one of" is required.
That eliminates A and C
Clause by definition is a one/compound subject+verb
That eliminates B and C
"Which" is used for things.
So E is out.

D!
