The correct option is 1.
If stretch receptors are removed from urinary bladder, there will be continuous micturition i.e urine will pass continuously. When urinary bladder becomes filled, the stretch receptors present in the walls of bladder send signals to the spinal cord along the pelvic nerves. The spinal cord sends reflex back to the muscles of bladder due to which they contract and develop the urge for urination. However, if these receptors are removed, the signal will not reach to the spinal cord and there will be no reflex phenomenon. The urine will accumulate in bladder and will overflow continuously.
