Would this word in the sentence be plural or singular?

"When I see ---, I see one of the largest student body population(s) with over 50,000 students."

The word in question is population. Thanks for the help.

    Plural, because you are referring to "one of" a group of populations. If you were talking about THE largest population, it would be singular, but you're talking about one out of a group of more than one. It wouldn't make sense to say "one of the largest one population."

    Plural. There are many colleges etc., each with a population, small or large. Of these populations, "I see...one of the largest (of the student body populations).

    Try,'When I see..., I see one of the largest populations,with over 50,000 students.'

    Probably not a good idea to have the word student mentioned twice in that sentence.

    After "one of the..." you need a plural word.

    I see one of the books.

    I ate one of the bananas.

    I see one of the populations.
