This would be expected if one process (for example an rman channel) was using a lot of cpu while other processes had minimal activity. The first thing I would do is just check top while they see the high activity on the single cpu to see if you have one process claiming a lot of cpu and then see what it is doing.

Yes it high cpu usage is always on single core. CPU usage is measured using aternity tool ,of 32 cores assigned the report shows only one core is utilizing more.

We observed, oracle database using only on CPU Core during business time around 90% when compared to other cpus on the server. on the server total 32 cpus assigned ,but only one cpu is getting used ,please advise what can be the possible reasons.
