I repaired some syntactical errors at your jquery code but what exactly do you mean?
function getBondAmountType(bondState,bondName)
{
  var object;
    if(bondState=="CA")
    {
 	 object ='<input type="text" name="test" id="test">';
    }
    else
    {
	 object ='<select type="text" name="test" id="test"></select>';
    }
}

if bond state = ca, parse html text box
if bond state != ca, parse html select drop down
both will be in one container.
