Correct option is
B

children

The prepositional phrase "one of" is followed by a noun in the plural form. Among the options given below, option B i.e "children" refers to a plural noun. Hence, this is the correct answer. 
Option A i.e child refers to a singular noun. Option C i.e childs is an incorrect word and carries no meaning. (The plural of the noun "child" is "children" and not "childs").
Hence both options A and C are incorrect.
