If we select a radio button than can we deselect it? just like in check box if we select a checkbox than we can deselect it by again click it.
My question is that how can i deselect radio button? When I click on selected radio button than its selection should clear.

That isn't really how they work... If you need to deselect a radio button, then you probably shouldn't be using radio buttons, but checkboxes instead.

If you really want to do this, just attach a listener to the buttons and .setSelected(false) on the source.
