    Neither one is correct.
    "I have mislaid the agreement paper" is correct.

    It's not a natural way to say it. You could use "was" instead of "got".

    "Misplaced" works in AmE. I misplaced the paper. The paper got misplaced.

    Re: Please inform me that which one of the following sentence is correct.

    Note that you need an article before the noun.

    The agreement paper was/got/has been mislaid/misplaced.
    An agreement paper was/got/has been mislaid misplaced.
    I mislaid/misplaced an/the agreement paper.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
