Correct Option is Both

Articles 168 to 212 in Part VI of the Constitution deal with the organisation, composition, duration, officers, procedures, privileges, powers and so on of the state legislature. The Parliament has laid down the following additional qualifications in the Representation of People Act (1951) 1.A person to be elected to the legislative council must be an elector for an assembly constituency in the concerned state and to be qualified for the governor’s nomination, he must be a resident in the concerned state. 2.A person to be elected to the legislative assembly must be an elector for an assembly constituency in the concerned state. 3.He must be a member of a scheduled caste or scheduled tribe if he wants to contest a seat reserved for them. However, a member of scheduled castes or scheduled tribes can also contest a seat not reserved for them. Hence statement 1 and 2 are correct.
