Hi Anitha, it's an easy procedure. 

Follow the below steps:

1. Create a parameter to choose the type of chart.

2. Now create a calculated field and use the field as below for each differing from the chart name.

IF [CHART]="Bar" Then SUM([Profit]) 
ELSE NULL END

3. Now place the created chart fields in the shelf.

4. Create a dual axis graph with the fields that are created and clear all lines and headers

You can now change your visual using parameter.

Hope it helps!
