There is no "more perfect" ellipse in AutoCAD than the perfect ellipse created with the ELLIPSE command.

>> Please show me how to construct perfect ellipse using technical drawing method in AutoCAD. <<

Maybe we need to know exactly what you mean by "technical drawing method," if that means something other than what I discussed in my earlier reply.  A question:  whatever you mean by that, is there a reason you need to do it that way, rather than to use the built-in command, which makes a more perfect one than you will ever be able to do by other methods?

Turn SNAP on at some large-enough value that you can pick on exactly the same locations, and draw an Ellipse using the ELLIPSE command with PELLIPSE set to 0, and again at the same locations with PELLIPSE set to 1, then Zoom in and you'll see the difference between a precise one [the Ellipse object] and a pretty close approximation [the Polyline object].  Is that approximation close enough to "perfect" for you?
