"Who one" - does it exist? If someone talks about things, places etc we can ask him a question: "which one?" for example: - I saw his car! - Which one? He's got two cars. And my question is what if we talk about people. Does something like "who one" exist? For example: - I met Helen's brother yesterday - Who one? Jake or Mike? Is this form correct? If not, what should we put there?

as I know, who one does't exist. Which one would be good in this situation

That's quite OK for spoken English

Your question shows quite a deep logical thought. In this case 'which' and 'who' are not symmetrical. You just ask /who ?/. Forms like /who is the one to answer aaa234's question ?/ are anyway allowed.
