I use MATLAB for Engineering computations for almost 3 years, however I don't have any idea how to "How to create a MATLAB code for generating audio sine wave signal of frequency ranges from 1Hz to 15kHz and plot it on real time." I request the staff to help me in generating this code.

Zafar - see the relevant parts of the noisy signal example on how to generate a sine wave with a particular frequency. You will need to determine how you transition between the different frequencies (or are they separate plots?) and what the "real time" component is.

Sir, the example 'noisy signal' is about creating signal and it's Fourier transform etc, I want an audio tune signal having frequency ranges from 1Hz to 15kHz.

Zafar, you can achieve this with audioOscillator and timescope. Here is an example.
% Generate and visualize a sine wave with variable frequency
osc = audioOscillator('sine');
scope = timescope('SampleRate',osc.SampleRate,...
'TimeSpanSource','property','TimeSpan',0.1, ...
'YLimits',[-1.5 1.5],...
'Title','Variable-Frequency Sine Wave');
counter = 0;
while (counter < 1e4)
counter = counter + 1;
scope(osc());
if mod(counter,1000)==0
osc.Frequency = osc.Frequency + 50;
end
end

Hi Zafar,
If you want to generate a periodic signal based on a custom wave, then I suggest you take a look at wavetableSynthesizer.
If your signal is a long MATLAB vector, and you want to stream it, you can pass it one frame at a time to the for loop. Something like this:
x = randn(1e6,1); % let's say this is your signal
frameLength = 1024;
counter = 1;
while (counter < floor(size(x,1)/frameLength))
frame = x((counter-1)*frameLength+1:counter*frameLength);
counter = counter + 1;
scope(frame);
end
