Answer will be 2 and 4 if we have to choose 2

Changing to Picklist (Multi-Select) from any other type

Currently, defined picklist values are retained when you change a picklist to a multi-select picklist. If records contain values that are not in the picklist definition, those values will be deleted from those records when the data type changes.
