If you're asking how to append one list to another, you would do it like this:
if (list.size() < 10) {
   list2 = //fetch more records
   //append the second list to the first

FROM first query i may get 10 records some that time i will not use second query.
if first query fetch only 6 records
i have to fetch rest of records from second query but second query will give n no of records.
i have to get only 4 records i dont want rest of the records from second query.

Add as many records as you need from the second query
int recordsToAdd = 10 - list.size();
if (recordsToAdd > 0) {
   list2 = //fetch more records
   //append the second list to the first
   for (Object element : list2) {
      if (recordsToadd == 0) {

With this approach there is performance issue

while fetching second query
let suppose second query fectch 100 records
we are taking only less than 10 records
as per above as u mentioned.

i want to set limit at dao layer itself while hitting the DB.
I have a common method in dao layer with pagenation limit with 10 records
i will pass recordsToAdd value to that method and i will limit here itselft w/o fetching all the records from DB.
Please find the attachment.

recordsToAdd  = 17
first time it will fetch 10 records and  then 7 records
