<script type="text/javascript">
    $("#ReportId").change(function () {
            url: "/RLMaster/GetHeadName",
            data: { ReportId: $('#ReportId').val() },
            type: "GET",
            dataType: "json",

            error: function () {
                alert("Failed! Please try again.");

This is my Javascript. I am able to retrieve data from database but unable to populate my DropDown List with that data.

you could use normal dropdownlist and access it from jquery and append options in it like below.
$('#dropdownId').append('<option value="+value+">"+text+"</option>');
loop through the values if it is more then one.

And how to write that dropdown list command in html with null values. I am very new to this and yet I have used dropdown only with Viewbags.
If possible please elaborate your answer. That would be a great help for me

<asp:DropDownList ID="drpList" runat="server">
<asp:ListItem Value="">Select

if you are using webforms this is the code of HTML for dropdownlist..

You can do with below code

1) first add below in html

@Html.DropDownList("ddldrpid", new SelectList(new List<selectlistitem>()), "Select State/Province")

2) now return selectlistitem from controller(make sure that its return List<selectlistitem> from json request).

3) After that in sucess part do it below code to bind drop down:

if (data.length > 1) {

               var selectList = $("#ddldrpid");
               $.each(data, function (index, item) {
                   selectList.append($('<option />', {
                       value: item.Value,
                       text: item.Text,

like that way you can bind drop down using jason result.

let me know if you need more help.
