Sliding Filament Theory states that

1. Contraction of muscle fibre takes place by the sliding of thin filaments over the thick filaments

2. Contraction of muscle fibre takes place by the sliding of thick filament over thin Filaments

3. Relaxation of muscle fibre takes place by the sliding of thick filament over thin filaments

4. Relaxation of muscle fibre takes place by the sliding of thin filament over thick filament
