The problem of the question that I do not see any of the phrases written correctly. The correct phrase would have been the option that would have shown the words:

One of my favorite songs.

The word "favorite" does not need to be written in plural because it is an adjective that is placed before the noun. However, if the sentence had suppressed the word "songs", you could say:

The song is one of my favorites

Therefore, as long as there is a noun included in the sentence, focus on the noun to convert it to singular or plural. If the adjective is by itself, then you work on the adjective and apply the same rule.
