A fellow proofreader and I disagree on this. Which method is correct: A or B?

 

A:

Red is one of the colors that suits me.
Wendy's is one of many restaurants that accepts Visa.

 

B:

Rob is one of many commuters who ride bikes.

Red is one of the colors that suit me.

Wendy's is one of many restaurants that accept Visa.
