Solution

The correct option is A I'm used to drinking
From the given question, it can be concluded that the subject has a habit of drinking coffee after dinner. Thus, the answer must contain a noun or pronoun that introduces the subject, an adverb that means 'habituated' and it must have the main verb as drinking accompanied by an auxiliary.
Option A is correct. 'I'm used to drinking' is correct as it meets all the required conditions. 'I' introduces the subject, 'used to' is an adverb that means 'habituated' and the main verb is drinking accompanied by the auxiliary 'am'
Option B is incorrect. 'I used to drinking' is a grammatically incorrect phrase. It does not contain an auxiliary to support the main verb and thus the verb is incomplete.
Option C is incorrect. 'I'm used drinking' does not have a word or a phrase that means habituated. The lack of 'to' makes 'used' the main verb and not 'drinking'. Thus, the sentence becomes grammatically incorrect.
Option D is incorrect. 'I used drinking' indicates that the subject utilised drinking and not that the subject has a habit of drinking. Thus, it does not convey the correct meaning and is not the correct answer.
