In my grammar book there is a rule said:
One of, each of, every one of *are followed by specific plural count nouns.
What your grammar book is telling you is exactly what you see in your first sentence:
One of the answers
Each of the sentences
Every one of the students
However, you need a singular verb because the verb must agree with one/each/every one.
