loader
B
Fewer

C
Many

D
Some
loader

Solution

The correct option is A One
The verb in the given sentence 'is' is singular. When the verb is singular, the noun in relation must also be singular. The number of words in the sequence must be consistent in a sentence.
The subject is a phrase '_____ of the children'. The head of the phrase will be singular, as determined before.
Option A: 'One' is a singular number as it refers to a single child, 'one of the' means 'one person from the rest of the children'.
 
Hence this option 'A' is correct.

Options B, C, and D: Fewer, many, and some all refer to plural nouns. They do not agree with the singular verb. Hence these options are wrong.
