Now, either you can go to Object -> Clipping Mask ->Make.
Or, simply right click on the selected objects and click on Make Clipping Mask.

6. Now create a circle on top of the text and select both the elements.
7. Our next step is to make the clipping mask either going to the object and then selecting the Make Clipping Mask option, or just using the short cut by a right-click and selecting the Make Clipping Mask directly.
