        data: "{}",
        contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
        dataType: "json",
        success: function (msg) {
            // How to return data here like a table???  
            $("#Second").text(msg.d);

Hello @kartik,

You need to do something like this:

[WebMethod]
public static string GetProducts()
{
  // instantiate a serializer
  JavaScriptSerializer TheSerializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();

  //optional: you can create your own custom converter
  TheSerializer.RegisterConverters(new JavaScriptConverter[] {new MyCustomJson()});

  var products = context.GetProducts().ToList();   

  var TheJson = TheSerializer.Serialize(products);

  return TheJson;
}

You can reduce this code further but I left it like that for clarity. In fact, you could even write this:

return context.GetProducts().ToList();

and this would return a json string. I prefer to be more explicit because I use custom converters. There's also Json.net but the framework's JavaScriptSerializer works just fine out of the box.

Hope it helps!!
Thank You!!
