Please suggest a pdf reader in which i can highlight text in linux mint 17.3

I use Master PDF Editor, it suits me and should be ok for what you want.

1+ for Master PDF Editor too.
But if you only want to highlight or otherwise annotate PDF documents then you could try Xournal. It should be in your distro repos too.

Yet another +1 for Master PDF Editor

And yet another for Master PDF Editor
