i have text file and have to create a function that will read a file which contain x and y cordinates for the data points and which will create a stem plot using n points random.

The sample file is helpful. How are you reading it in?
I notice the x values are all positive integers - perhaps they are index values. If I remember correctly from your deleted question, you did not want the stem plots to all fall on integer values along the x axis. So, I guess my question is, once you read the x and y values in, are they simply the inputs to stem(x,y)?

I am reading file using fopen but on x axis the points I want is total number of points in the file and after passing suppose n=20 it should plot 20 random points but the x axis should not changed

Well, still kinda' difficult to figure out exactly what is wanted, but as near as I can make out, something like;
t=readtable('file.txt'); % read the file
t=t(:,[2 4]); % get rid of the two x,y character columns
t.Properties.VariableNames={'x','y'}; % name two columns appropriately
% preliminaries out of way, the engine
nr=size(t,1); % rows in dataset
n=20; % arbitrary number points to plot initially and to choose randomly
ix=sort([1:n randperm(nr-n,n)+n]); % build the indexing vector of first n and n random thereafter
stem(t.x(ix),t.y(ix)) % and stem() plot those...

I would add an xlim([0 max(x)]) as otherwise the full x axis will not be displayed if the randomly chosen x locations are all less than 90.

My understanding is he's actually wanting |xlim([0 x(end)]) regardless, so that's what I recommended above earlier.
But, expectations are so nebulous and getting information like pulling hens' teeth so I just said "salt to taste" this time...
Reminds of a DOE manager I worked for as consultant lo! those many years ago. I characterized working for him as being instructed "Bring me a rock!" When the rock was delivered, it was always "No, not that rock!" but could never say just which variety/size/shape/color of rock was desired until, finally, he either ran out of budget or (usually) would after third or fourth iteration suddenly decide the first or second was actually the one he was looking for after all... :)

Assume data stored in this form
1 23
2 34
3 54
The code is
file = load('data.txt');
x=file(randi(10,1,n),1); % 10:max 1:min n: points number
