You are not binding your dropdownlist to the value you are fetching from your datasource.
Set the SelectedValue of your dropdownlist as shown in the following code snippet I have modified for you:


void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        {
            DropDownList ddlTemp = e.Row.Cells[4].FindControl("DropDownList1") as DropDownList;
            ddlTemp.Items.FindByText(((DataRowView)e.Row.DataItem)["NOOFPAGES"].ToString()).Selected = true;
 
        }

I forgot to add a check in the code.
First time, the RowDataBound is called for the Header Row of GridView which will not contain your drop down list.
So also check for Row to be a DataRow and then only bind your Drop Down list.
Modified code is in the following Code Snippet:
void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        {
if(e.Row.RowType==DataControlRowType.DataRow)
		{
            DropDownList ddlTemp = e.Row.Cells[4].FindControl("DropDownList1") as DropDownList;
            ddlTemp.Items.FindByText(((DataRowView)e.Row.DataItem)["NOOFPAGES"].ToString()).Selected = true;
 
        }
}
