Correct option is A)

The words "one of" is normally followed by a noun in the plural form. Among the options given below, option A i.e "participants" is a plural noun. Hence, this is the correct answer. 
Option B i.e participant refers to a singular noun. Option C i.e participantes is an incorrect word and carries no meaning.   
Hence both options B and C are incorrect.
