Hi Pallalvi

Organizations are looking for talent to join them, not just someone to do a job. Be honest and enthusiastic but mainly keen to prove yourself in the job you're applying for. 

A sample answer could be like -'I want to move forward and have a career that makes good progress. I know that my career will depend first and foremost on doing well in the job I go into. As I do that job I'll also become more knowledgeable in the industry'.

The underlying crux is to show that you are ambitious but not arrogant enough to know exactly where you want to be. Sometimes this question is asked for the opposite reason.  Some jobs, particularly in small organizations, don't offer an obvious career path or opportunities for advancement.
