    Re: Who

    #1 is correct.

    Interrogative 'who' takes the singular form of the verb.

    As 5jj said, "Who" takes the singular. Note my corrections to your post in red.

    It's easy to remember how to spell "Which" - the five interrogative words are:

    Who
    What
    Where
    When
    Why

    They all start with "Wh".

    If your question is "Who lives with you?" then your final sentence should have been "I mean that I don't know who lives with you". If you want to know how many people live with the person, then your question would be "How many people live with you?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
