A PNG is a pixel format, so some pixels should be expected.

You will need to turn on antialiasing.

What are you doing? Exporting artwork? Or something else? Are there pixel images in your artwork and what is the problem you expect to solve? Just asking because this thread is 5 years old. And also because the answer depends on it.

I am learning graphic design or logo design. When in flyer design we place the image in illustrator and make a clipping mask, the image gets blurred.

OK, so your issue is not about exporting images. And your problem is rather the opposite of what is discussed in this thread. Please create a new thread.

 

And in your new thread please tell us about the document. How large is it?

Do the images have sufficent resolution? Also when you scale them?

How far are you zoomed in in Illustrator?

Check View > Pixel Preview to get a better idea of the resulting export.
