get option name instead of value in wp function

i have this code in word press that is not changeable:

<select id="_status" name="_status" class="select short">
<option value="1">yes</option>
<option value="2">no</option>
</select>

and this code that give me the value of select:

$orc= get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'_status',true);

i want to get the “yes” or “no” instead of 1 or 2
i change the function get_post_meta to get_option but dos not work
what should i do?

You have to use condition like this:

 $orc = ( isset( $orc ) && $orc == 'true' ) ? 'yes' : 'no';
