a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

Replace 'was' by 'were' in part 2.

When subject is a relative pronoun, the verb agrees in Number and Person, with the noun/pronoun to which the relative pronoun refers.

Here, relative pronoun 'which' refers to 'the issues' i.e. plural, therefore, the verb should also be 'plural'.

The correct sentence should be: One of the issues which were discussed at the meeting were raised by him.

e.g. Ravi who is my friend has a thirst for knowledge.

The students who are here did not do well.
