Your documents contains the paragraph break. You can iterate over paragraphs nodes of document and get their text. Please check the following code example. Hope this helps you.

Document document = new Document(MyDir + "test_breaks.docx");
for (Paragraph paragraph : (Iterable<Paragraph>)document.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true))

We suggest you please read about Aspose.Words’ document object model from here:

@tahir.manzoor thanks for quick response.
I tried the suggested code, actually I want to update an end of all paragraphs with ~line-break~.
But when I try to save the document into html format after updating the end of paragraph, the saved html file is not same as word document, bullet points are getting misplaced.
Looks like an issue, please take a look at it.
PFA input and output file.
Code -

Document doc = new Document("document.docx");
NodeCollection<Paragraph> collection = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true);
for (Node node : collection.toArray())
    node.getRange().replace("&p", "~line-break~&p");
doc.save("temp.html", SaveFormat.HTML_FIXED);
