Sounds like crappy project management to me. Acting like an asshole and talking in riddles to make you feel like you are doing things wrong and you should know things that you actually shuldn't know instinctively sounds like a terrible way to onboard new team members.

Try to do your best but don't blame yourself too much for things that are beyond your responsibilities or your possible knowledge in your current place in your career. You will come across something better eventually, all you have to lose is learn stuff that will help you get a better job.

Thanks
I didn't want to leave my job but unexpected things are happening. I moved to other city for this job, and i waited for 1 year to get my dream job although i had many other job options but i wanted to be a developer and i worked hard for this. I learned many new things on my own. But everything is unexpected now they are giving me depression i feel like a dumb person who can't understand what is happening to him.

I cannot tell you what to do really. You should learn to cope with pressure and work hard, but that does not mean tolerate any kind of bullshit or fall into depression and burnout before you even start your career.
If you think you can power through and you feel that there is something you can get out of that job/company, then try to keep up, it might get better overtime. Don't give up without even trying to put up a fight.
On the other hand, if you feel exhausted and abused, stop. Fuck that, fuck them.

The company has a 3 month probation period policy for new joiners. I am nervous should i keep working with them or resign from job before they ask me to leave their office ? Everyone is saying that i should not leave my job as i lack experience and I don't have reference for new job .
I am feeling lost 😞

Main problem is mindset your boss will feel it if you were enthusiastic and really try to commit he may even keep you even if you didn't do your job well but if he feels you are the kind of person who are undetermined at the first difficulties encountered he risks not so write a second post and commit yourself to cheer up ;)

I don't know what he is thinking about me . But they didn't pay attention on me from the very first they gave me a laptop and said work on graphql we use GraphQL, before that i had very little knowledge but i learnet many new things which I did not know earlier then he gave me a project to work on. He told me Orally and send me the link of documentation i was new to these things and today he said you didn't improve yourself in three weeks. Whereas one week ago he said i am improving and appreciated my work. Today he said i don't know anything at all.
I have decided i will leave this company i am not begging for job but i wanted to be a developer.

Don't worry you'll find another one but be careful not to publicly post your negative opinions except when you're already established because some potential employers will read you ;)
