Hi @ankur

I have made few changes to your code, and its workinh pretty fine.
please have a look

Apex:
public with sharing class Picklist 
{
    public String err{get;set;}
    //shortened variable names
    public String sC1{get;set;}
    public String sC2{get;set;}
    public String sC3{get;set;}
    public String sC4{get;set;}
    public String sC5{get;set;}
    public String sC6{get;set;}
    public String sC7{get;set;}
    public String sC8{get;set;}
    public String sC9{get;set;}
    public String sC10{get;set;}
    
    //changed getCountriesOptions to cOs
    public List<SelectOption> cOs;
    public boolean disable{get; set;}
    
    public Picklist(){
        //populated selecOption List in constructor
        cOs = new List<SelectOption>();
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('','-None-'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('INDIA','India'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('USA','USA'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('United Kingdom','UK'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('Germany','Germany'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('Ireland','Ireland'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('bangladesh','bangladesh'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('pakistan','pakistan'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('srilanka','srilanka'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('bhutan','bhutan'));
    }
     
    public List<SelectOption> getCountriesOptions() {
        //simply return already populated list
        return cOs;
    }
    //added new function, it is executed whenever selectList value is changed
    public void removeCountry() {
        Integer listSize = cOs.size();
        //excluded index 0 in loop as it holds null value
        for(Integer i=1;i<listSize;i++){
            if(cOs[i].getValue()==sC1 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC2 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC3 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC4 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC5 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC6 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC7 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC8 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC9 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC10){
                cos[i].setDisabled(true);
            }
            else if(cOs[i].getValue()!=sC1 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC2 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC3 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC4 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC5 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC6 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC7 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC8 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC9 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC10){

Hi Ankur,

There are two way to achieve the functionality one way using javascript and another way by apex.

I will help you how we can achiveve from apex controller.

Hi @ankur

I have made few changes to your code, and its workinh pretty fine.
please have a look

Apex:
public with sharing class Picklist 
{
    public String err{get;set;}
    //shortened variable names
    public String sC1{get;set;}
    public String sC2{get;set;}
    public String sC3{get;set;}
    public String sC4{get;set;}
    public String sC5{get;set;}
    public String sC6{get;set;}
    public String sC7{get;set;}
    public String sC8{get;set;}
    public String sC9{get;set;}
    public String sC10{get;set;}
    
    //changed getCountriesOptions to cOs
    public List<SelectOption> cOs;
    public boolean disable{get; set;}
    
    public Picklist(){
        //populated selecOption List in constructor
        cOs = new List<SelectOption>();
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('','-None-'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('INDIA','India'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('USA','USA'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('United Kingdom','UK'));
        cOs.add(new SelectOption('Germany','Germany'));

    }
     
    public List<SelectOption> getCountriesOptions() {
        //simply return already populated list
        return cOs;
    }
    //added new function, it is executed whenever selectList value is changed
    public void removeCountry() {
        Integer listSize = cOs.size();
        //excluded index 0 in loop as it holds null value
        for(Integer i=1;i<listSize;i++){
            if(cOs[i].getValue()==sC1 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC2 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC3 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC4 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC5 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC6 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC7 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC8 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC9 || cOs[i].getValue()==sC10){
                cos[i].setDisabled(true);
            }
            else if(cOs[i].getValue()!=sC1 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC2 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC3 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC4 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC5 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC6 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC7 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC8 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC9 && cOs[i].getValue()!=sC10){
