    (the) one that/which

    John: Let's pick a card.
    Tom: I like _____ has the bright blue sky.
    (A) it (B) one which (C) the one that (D) a one which

    I think option C is correct. Is option B also possible?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: (the) one that/which

    You could say something like "I'd like one that has a bright blue sky on it." (You don't see a card like this - you are just describing your preference.)
    B doesn't say that.
    So C, yes.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
