Hi in my project..i have a requirement where in there is a request/application form.I need to hide/show some options if a user selects no/yes.
my manager does not want me to do any coding or customization.I can use info path,Sp designer..I did it through infopath but anyother ways?
And also they need save,submit,cancel buttons at the bottom..

InfoPath would be the best choice for your requirement.
The show/hide portion is covered in detail here. You can review your current approach with following articles:
W.r.t the Submit Form:
InfoPath form can be saved/submitted to multiple locations like Sharepoint List, MS Access, SQL Server, Web Service, Email Message.
You can connect it to datasource, where a new item will be created when user clicks submit button. This is explained here:

I presume the workflows work based on the status of the application. Hence change the status to "Saved" on click of Save.
2 actions would comprise this button
Condition - None
Rule type - Action
Run these actions: a) Set field's value : _FormButtonAction = Saved
b) Set field's value: _SaveForm = false
c) Set field's value: _ServiceRequestStatus = false
Another action would be
Condtion - None
Rule Type - Action
a) Submit using data connection - (create data connection to your sharepoint library and reference here)
b) Switch to viewSaveAsDraft
