Is there a way to make a wordpress site without buying a domain ?

I was under the impression that wordpress is free of charge like blogspot.com.

Yes for wordpress.com you dont need to purchase a custom domain. When you create a site, you will be able to access it through yoursitename.wordpress.com. Its all explained here https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/#setting-the-primary-domain

So you're saying that if I want a site like xyz.com through them I have to pay them, but if I don't pay them then my site will be xyz.wordpress.com ?

You can run it local with MAMP (Mac), WAMP (Windows) or LAMP(Linux) Or u can use a free hosting like www.000webhost.com
