hello !

where is
$conn = mysqli->open(..,..?..?..);

if you don't use a function on $_REQUEST, it's just a reallocation of the value for nothing, it's useless the way you do.
$var_for_nothing = $_request['first_var'];
you're making 2 vars for 1 value. it's a problem.
$_REQUEST is an array, with vars in, already in memory stamp.
about gender_detail : if it's a boolean, you have to integrate this value without escaping characters, so 'no quote' 1 or 0 will pass.
the db engine wait for a 'boolean' and you send a 'string'. so an error is return.

Solution 1 is incorrect. Your database table does not have a column called gender_detail - check the spelling

Do not do it like that! Never concatenate strings to build a SQL command. It leaves you wide open to accidental or deliberate SQL Injection attack which can destroy your entire database. Always use Parameterized queries instead.

When you concatenate strings, you cause problems because SQL receives commands like:
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE StreetAddress = 'Baker's Wood'
The quote the user added terminates the string as far as SQL is concerned and you get problems. But it could be worse. If I come along and type this instead: "x';DROP TABLE MyTable;--" Then SQL receives a very different command:
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE StreetAddress = 'x';DROP TABLE MyTable;--'
Which SQL sees as three separate commands:
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE StreetAddress = 'x';
A perfectly valid SELECT
A perfectly valid "delete the table" command
And everything else is a comment.
So it does: selects any matching rows, deletes the table from the DB, and ignores anything else.

So ALWAYS use parameterized queries! Or be prepared to restore your DB from backup frequently. You do take backups regularly, don't you?

using a 'boolean' for gender :

$sql ="INSERT INTO  form (first_name, last_name, mother_name, father_name, address_detail, gender_detail ) VALUES ('".$fname."', '".$Lname."', '".$Mname."', '".$fathername."', '".$address."',$gender)";
