If we want to deserialize Json object to a runtime type or dynamic type we can use 3rd overload method of JsonConvert.DeserializeObject

string jsonData = "{\"key\":\"value\"}";
string typeName = "SampleNamespace.SampleClassName";
Type requestType = Type.GetType(typeName);
var result = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(jsonData, requestType);

In the above code typeName is class name which is matching json properties.

then create the type using Type.GetType() method.

then pass this type to our JsonConvert.DeserializeObject method.
