Its working but i want to prevent the sql injection for this query
so could you please assist on this how to use for IN clause in oracle

What I have tried:

I have tried
OracleCommand oraCommand = new OracleCommand("select * from student where studentID= stdId and courseid in = :courceids ", con);

Hi Gerry Schmtiz,
we are using direct select commands with in clause (Oracle db ) but we dont have access for db modifications, just we are fetching data by using the select command
For that we need to pass in clause to db with cmd.parameters.

If you had checked the code, you would see it creates parms for each value for the in clause. In other words, brute force instead of some magic expression.

#2 says the same thing.
You need to pass multiple parameters, one for each item in your list.
using (var oraCommand = new OracleCommand(null, con))
    oraCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@studentID", studentID);
    var parameterNames = new List<string>(courseIDs.Count);
    for (int index = 0; index < courseIDs.Count; index++)
        string name = "@courseId" + index;
        oraCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue(name, courseIDs[index]);
    oraCommand.CommandText = string.Format("SELECT ... FROM student WHERE studentID = @studentID And courseId In ({0})", string.Join(", ", parameterNames));

It might be easier to use Dapper:
IEnumerable<Student> students = connection.Query<Student>("SELECT ... FROM student WHERE studentID = @studentID And courseId In (@courseIDs)", new { studentID = 42, courseIDs = new[] { 1, 2, 3 } });
