I have Foxconn motherboard with ddr3 4gb ram and it has an additional slot to put ram. Now can I put 4gb ddr4 ram to this Foxconn motherboard?

No.

DDR4
modules are not compatible with DDR3 slots. • The notch in the DDR3 and DDR4 is placed at different places so that they will not be mistakenly fixed to the wrong slots.

Some motherboards have hybrid slots ie 2 slots for ddr3 and 2 slots for ddr4 however you cannot mix the ram. It is either or not both. DDR3 and DDR4 require different voltage.

Note these few boards have have both types of slots are usually very low end motherboards.

Only the low end foxconn or ECS boards had dual slots ie DDR2/3 or DDR3/4. This was to allow people on very tight budgets to reuse their old ram.
