    has Vs have

    We know that the correct construction is:

    He is one of those people who have a rare deformity.

    But, how about the following. Should it be:

    a. He is the only one of those people who has a rare deformity.

    or

    b. He is the only one of those people who have a rare deformity.

    Thanks.

    "He is one of the people who have..." but "He is the only one who has..."
