Sentence Correction: Relative Clauses - One of the + plural noun + who/which/that

As surprising as it may seem, in the medium-long term Iceland is one of the places that are most likely to benefit from global warming.

Correct!

This answer choice is grammatically incorrect. The relative clause that are most likely to benefit from global warming describes the noun that appears immediately before it, namely, places. Since places is plural, the verb that follows it also needs to be plural. However, is is singular.

What helps us identify this question as a Relative Clause question as well as identify the mistake is the following Stop Sign:

one of the + plural noun + who/which/that

Whenever you see this Stop Sign, make sure that the following verb is plural.

In addition, the omission of the word most changes the meaning of the original sentence. 

While this answer choice is grammatically correct, it is illogical as a result of the omission of the word from. Benefiting from global warming is different from benefitting global warming. This answer choice implies that global warming will benefit from several places, one of which is Iceland. This is not only different from the original meaning but also makes little sense.    

While this answer choice is grammatically correct, it changes the meaning of the original sentence by the omission of the word most.
