You have copied the example incorrectly. I believe you left out the word I.

am goes with I.

yup sorry.

"It is I who (is,am) the only friend you've got," she told him pointedly.

Why is am the answer??

Because you would not say: "I is the only friend you've got.". The form of "to be" has to be in agreement with the person.

[It is] I [who] am the only friend you've got.

But you would also not say" who am" would you?

According to me, as learnt ,with first person I basically ,' am' to be used.

Eg: It is- I am going to play not I is going to play.
