    Put the code
    Code:
    return2menu();
    on line 47 of your second function.

    OR. . .

    Post your code so we can help you.

    Pick better topic titles as well.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    we appreciate the fact that you atleast tried
    You can think of this :

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main()
    {
          int option ,flag=0;
          
          
          printf( "Welcome to the main menu,please chose from the following options...:\n\n" ) ;//menu greating
          printf( "1.      opt1.\n\n" ) ;//option 1
          printf( "2.      op2.\n\n" ) ;//option 2
          printf(" 3.      exit  \n\n");
          
        
          while(flag == 0)
          {
          printf( "Please chose an option between 1 - 2:\n") ;
          scanf( "%d",&option) ;//option input
          
          switch (option)       //begining of switch statement
          {
                
                
                
                case 1:
                     printf( "this is opt1\n") ; // begining of option 1
          
        
                
               case 2:
                     printf( "this is opt2" ) ;
                  break ;
                
                
                 case 3:
                      printf(" exit");
                      flag=1;
                     break;           
    
               }//end switch
          
          } // end while
          
          
          return 0;
          }//end main
