Rules tested here -

1) Placement of ONLY -
placement of 'ONLY' decides what is being modified..
he is the only one of eight people ..... means Out of the eight people, he is the only one who has done....
he is the one of only eight people .... means there are eight people and he is one of them who have done....
you can eliminate all except A and C

2) Verb issue
one of PLURAL who PLURAL verb..
Only A follows it

A

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question has to do with time agreement. Because the university gave the award in the past, it must further refer to a performance that had happened before that. Therefore the past perfect tense is required to refer to the performance. Only A has this tense. E also changes the meaning. A is correct.
