How to display multiple option to user in React Native?

React Native Picker Component is used to hanlde this type of scenarios. By using Picker we can display multiple option drop down. This is similar to Android spinner widget.

selectedValue Returns the selected value.
style It is a picket style type.
testID It is used to locate this view in end-to-end tests.
