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 (?).

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.

Hii Maryam.
In B, "who" is modifying "them" but since the helping verb after "who" is "is", we need a singular noun. Hence B is incorrect. Also there is one more mistake in B. Whenever you come across such sentences such as "one of X(Always Plural) who/that" always remember that verb to be followed has to be PLURAL.
In short:
One of X(Always Plural) who/that Y(Always Plural verb)
BUT
One of X(Always Plural) (Always Singular Verb)

Another major mistake in the question. "One of whom" and other options are incorrectly modifying "Seminar". This is a weird question. If it were "At the seminar the presenters, one of whom is blind, will bla bla bla", then it would have been right.
Hope that helps.

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,
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

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?

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

A - 'one' can not refer back to presenters
C - 'and' distorts the meaning
E - 'which' cannot refer to people ('presenters' in this case)

Between B and D, I choose D because it is more concise. Also, whom is properly used as an object pronoun.

Who refers to the subjective case while whom is refers to objective case.

Here since the blind person is object, therefore whom will be used.

Therefore the right answer is D.
