When I moved to my new house, the gyprock got scratched when moving the furniture. Can you please let me know how can i repair and fix this ? I have attached some photos for your reference.

Thanks for sharing photos so members can see what you are working with.
I'd start with sugar soap and see if you can remove the marks. As @prettyliving has previously shared, dry with a cloth as you go to prevent streaking. Jess has also shared other techniques you can try in this discussion: Tips to remove wall marks.
For the scratches I would then try gentle sanding and see if you can get a smooth surface. It's a bit hard to tell how deep your scratches are, but it would be great if you could get a smooth surface without needing filler and following the steps in a repair like this: Patching holes in the wall.
I'll also ask @EricL to share his thoughts when he is back on the site on the weekend.
Thank you for sharing your question about how to fix the scratch in Gyprock.
It's great that you've received fantastic advice from @Jason. I totally agree with his recommendation short of using Selleys 180g Colour Smart Gap Filler. I suggest trying standard cleaning practices such as using Glitz 750ml Spray On Wipe Off along with 3M Scotch-Brite 120mm x 80mm Heavy Duty Scrub Sponges - 8 Pack.
However, if you find that the damage is deeper and can't be fixed with regular cleaning you will have to fill in the damage. Before repairing the damage, I suggest taking a paint sample at least the size of a 10 cent coin. You can bring this to the store and get a paint match. Once you have the paint sample, you can proceed to repair the plaster wall.
