    Re: the one of the students who

    You can say, "I was one of the students who were.........", if you were one of many.
    Your second sentence is fine if you were the only one.

    Thank you.
    " I was the one of the students..." is incorrect.
    " I was the only one of the students..." seems redundant. I prefer: "I was the only student who was invited to the conference."
