Assuming you're asking about Sitecore 9 Forms, if you have the value, you can get the selected text of a dropdown field like this:

if (field is DropDownListViewModel)
 DropDownListViewModel dropdownField = field as DropDownListViewModel;
 string selectedtext = dropdownField.Items.FirstOrDefault(a => a.Value == value)?.Text;

By the way, the HabitatHome demo repository has a useful little extension method sample for getting the value of a submitted form field. Check it out here
