I selected a specific area, exported the .osm fila and analyzed it completely. <The cordinates on nodes were present in the dataset, but I was not able to understand how the design of roads are created on osm map. NO coordinates of the road are present in the dataset, then how are the roads plotted so accurately?

The road are represented by ways, which are lists of nodes, with tags. You'll much more details on the wiki.
