Hi as I am new to appian I wanted to know how can I use modal pop-up in appian? Is that possible?

Can you specify what you mean by "modal pop-up"? What particular use case are you trying to accomplish?
Like if someone reads something he has to acknowledge that through a pop-up. Until he acknowledges the entire screen will be greyed out except the notification
I don't know of any direct way to do this specifically, though if you familiarize yourself with existing interface funcitonality and options, i'm guessing you'd be able to figure out an implementation that satisfies this requirement (though perhaps with a slightly different design) using existing components.
You can hide the content of a user interface (except the acknowledgement checkbox) and the content is made visible when the user acknowledges the presented content. Or, instead of hiding, you can display a card layout )coloured in grey) and in this have the components that contain the text that needs to be read and to capture an acknowledgement. You can use the acknowledgement to hide the card layout and contents and simultaneously display the actual content.
If you are looking for a solution to write acknowledge information into DB and you want to show this acknowledge information in pop up screen you can try this approach if it meets your requirement.
this might not be the best solution, but you can try.
If what the user reads is related to a record, you can create a record action for 'Acknowledge Item' and have that open in a pop-up.
