    a)Brazil is one of the largest country in the world.

    b)Brazil is one of World's largest country.

    You say Brazil is ONE OF. So it would HAVE to be plural - i.e. ONE OF THE LARGEST COUNTRIES.
    So:

    a)Brazil is one of the largest countries in the world.

    b)Brazil is one of the world's largest countries.

    Will that work?
