I dropped a table .and now the size of the tablespace is

Tablespace Used MB Free MB Total MB Pct. Free
------------------------------ ---------- - --------- ---------- ---------

It shows the table is removed and moved to recycle bin...

SQL> select * from tab where tname like '%BIN%';

------------------------------ ------- ----------
BIN$suEt4WizTf+YuvQQAJ90Kw==$0 TABLE

However in Oracle documentation i read ..."It stays in the same tablespace, with
the same structure as that of the original table. If there are indexes or triggers defined on the table, they are renamed too, using the same naming
convention used by the table.The objects are not moved from the tablespace they were in earlier; they still occupy the space there"

If this is the case ...y the freespce in my tablespace is increased after droppping that table. If my table is stored in same tablespace(recycle bin) the free space should not increase...

please explain this ...

yes it is free, the space is marked as reusable so if the tablespace becomes full it will overwrite your recyclebin space.

So the space free is correct
