Correct Option is Both 1 and 2

MEANING OF SPECIAL LEAVE PETITION Special leave petition (SLP) means that an individual takes special permission to be heard in an appeal against any high court/tribunal verdict. Thus it is not an appeal but a petition filed for an appeal. So after an SLP is filed, the Supreme Court may hear the matter and if it deems fit, it may grant the ‘leave’ and convert that petition into an ‘appeal’. SLP shall then become an Appeal and the Court will hear the matter and pass judgment. Hence both statements are correct.
