The liquidity in the active bin can only be removed with the first option.

My Liquidity

The section "My Liquidity" gives you a quick overview of all your provided liquidity positions. The top row shows a summary of all your liquidity aggregated together. Under "Claim all" you can claim all the trading fees earned throughout all your positions in 1 click.
Each pool you provided liquidity for is listed below with its current stats. On the righthand side of each liquidity position the overview shows you if your liquidity is still active or not. Active means that current trading activity is happening in one of the bins you chose to provide liquidity for. If one position shows that your liquidity is Inactive, this means that you have no liquidity provided in the bin where current trading activity is happening. Only liquidity that is active is earning trading fees.
All rewards must be claimed manually, this is a design feature as compounding rewards back into an LP that is in a concentrated range is not a feasible event.
Providing liquidity with a concentrated position is a complex and risky procedure, to familiarize yourself with the types of strategies you can deploy, please read the following guide.
