statusChoice=["Active","Completed","Cancelled","On Hold"];
selectedStatus: string ='';

Solution

Your property is called selectedStatus, and you linked the mat-select to property selectedTask.status.

Also, you should add value to the mat-option.

Change your code like this:

<mat-select placeholder="Select Category" [(ngModel)]="selectedStatus">
  <mat-option *ngFor="let s of statusChoice" [value]="s">{{s}}</mat-option>
</mat-select>
