The answer is
A. endothelial cells of the peritubular capillaries (in the renal cortex)
If you have listened to Goljan audio then you will know that he has hammered this point in so many times......

The other options are:
B. Vitamin D : is made in the Proximal Tubular cells
C. Renin: is secreted in the Juxtaglomerular cells in the afferent arterioles
