    I was one of the few to point the mistake.

    Hello again!

    I was one of the few to point the mistake.

    Does the sentence above mean the same as "I was one of the few who pointed the mistake". (I pointed the mistake).

    Thank you.

    It is "point out" and "pointed out". Then, they have the same meaning.
