Solution

The correct option is A 1 only
A judge of the supreme court or High court is removed by the Process of impeachment. The President is authorized to remove the judge from his office only after an address by the Parliament has been presented to him in the same session for such removal. The address must be supported by a special majority of each house of the Parliament. (Majority of the total membership of that House and a majority of not less than two-thirds of the member of that House present and voting).
The retired permanent judges of a High court are prohibited from pleading or acting in any court or before any authority in India except the Supreme Court and other high courts.
