naumira... clause in this sentence" Mr. Chandra is one of our employees who are/is diligent.
are. employees are.

But if you want a better sentence: Mr. Chandra is one of our (most) diligent employees.

Thanks CalifJimfor for clearing my doubt, so it's better for me to use the second one.

Mr.Chandra is one of our employees who is diligent.

Because Mr.Chandra is just one person,althought employees are more than 2 persons,but you can think that it's like an object in sentence,Mr.Chandra is a subject in sentence.

As CalifJim said,if you want,his sentence is pretty well,too: Mr.Chandra is one of our (most) diligent employees.

Sincerely,

Oh my, that IS a tricky one in English. The clause "who are diligent" modifies "employees," which is plural. Therefore, ARE is the correct verb choice. Think of it this way: You have several employees who ARE diligent, and Mr. Chandra IS one of them. Does that make sense.?

You could say: Mr Chandra is AN EMPLOYEE who IS diligent.

Hope this helps.
you must use who is.
