Other than 一つ and 一人 which are given examples here could you use other counters such as 一匹 like so:
“Cats are one of many popular pets.”
And so on with other counters relevant to subject or would you just stick with 一つ and 一人?
Other counters can be also used that way, though つ is the most common one.
This animal is one of the feline spieces.
Please consider mentioning that in the notes for this. I tend to check every forum discussion thread as I learn new grammar in case I miss helpful things like this.
