[A]Supreme Court
[B]Any Court in India
[C]High Courts

D is the correct answer.
Article 220 says that No person who, after the commencement of this Constitution, has held office as a permanent Judge of a High Court shall plead or act in any court or before any authority in India except the Supreme Court and the other High Courts. Originally, article 220 contained an important factor affecting the selection of High Court judges from the bar, that is the total prohibition on practice after their retirement from the bench. It was the 7th amendment act of the Constitution of India which proposed to revise the article so as to relax this complete ban and permit a retired judge to practise in the Supreme Court and in any High Court other than the one in the which he was a permanent judge.
