  • Hi kuria,

    You could use if condition and return different result. like this:

    if(condition 1)
        var query = db.Persons.GroupBy(x => new {, x.region}).Select(o=> new { sex =, reg= o.Key.region,count=o.Count()});
    if(condition 2 )
       var query = db.Persons.GroupBy(x =>;
    // other condition.

    In addition, you could also use dynamic group by, for more information, please refer to:
