which one?

schoolman

It seems to me that the predicate 'lives' relates to the subject 'one'. Here 'one' is the third person singular, so we have to add ending '-s' to the stem of the 'live'.

JJ

The one man in the subject of the sentence so the third person must be used.

Yolanda

I would like to have access to your well organized tests and articles

Bendel

1/7 men in U.K.hm,a lot of people.

Miriades

One out of seven. Just one person. He or she, third singular person
