There may be no best/excellent answers, or a there may be a few excellent answers!


For a human being, who and whom should be used..
WHO is used as subject and WHOM is used as object.

When in confusion, replace it with personal pronoun for example use he/they and him/them. If he/they fits in, use who, the subject and if him/them fits in, use whom, the object.

Many of they have tenure OR many of them have tenure.
Of course Them is correct, so WHOM is correct

first of all we can straight away remove D and E because which and that cannot refer to professor , they are normally used to refer to inanimate objects.
B is incorrect because of many of is unidiomatic
now, [b] who
is used to refer to subject of the verb , while whom is used for the object.
one trick to know which one to use is to substitute he/him/she for who or they/them/her for whom

when we replace the underlined part with "many of he/him"
then with "many of them "
the later looks fine

so

Official Explanation :

In order to answer this question, you must ascertain whether to use whom, which, who or that. The pronoun refers to people, so use who or whom. Eliminate (D) and (E).

The remaining split is between who and whom. To test which pronoun you need, replace whom and who with other objective and subjective pronouns that have a more correct obvious use. You would correctly write "many of them", not "many of they", so in this instance you need to use the objective case of the pronoun, or whom. Eliminate (B) and (C).

The sentence is correct as written, and the answer is (A).
