To my knowledge, you should have a regular master´s/post graduate to get full points. Distance education is not a fulltime education and I dont think you will get credit for it. However, you may be able to get the 5 points for spousal adaptation as she is a regular graduate even without considering her post grad.

but it is given on the government of canada´s site that the applicant should have passed full time study or EQUIVALENT TO FULL TIME STUDY, it is defined on that site that if duration of study is same as regular or full time(which means duration should be same,e.g.3years for full time of graduation then it should be 3 years for study of part time or on accelerated basis).here i am confused what is the meaning of study equvalent to full time. in my case my duration for graduation and post graduation is same as 5years, please help me as i am bit confused.

As long as your distance learning course is recognized as equivalent to regular full-time course you should not have much problems. See page 14 of this manual.
