Thank for the follow up i got the answer. NWF$('#' + APN).find("option:selected").text();

Can you please help to Check radio button based on a value.

Tried the below code but it was used to clear the checked value in the radio button.

NWF$('#' + txtElection).find("input:checked").attr('checked',false);
