sql query
select AuditCategoryName from IS_AuditCategory where AuditCategoryId in(select CheckListCategoryIds from IS_AuditChecklistProjectScope where IS_AuditChecklistProjectScope.[PrimaryProjectScopeId ] =2)

Conversion failed when converting the varchar value '46,48,43,45,44' to data type int.

Try this...

select AuditCategoryName 
from IS_AuditCategory t1
JOIN (select CheckListCategoryIds 
		from IS_AuditChecklistProjectScope 
		where IS_AuditChecklistProjectScope.[PrimaryProjectScopeId]=2
ON ','+CheckListCategoryIds+',' LIKE '%,'+CAST(AuditCategoryId as varchar(30))+',%'

Let me know the result

or use a string parsing UDF to get values onto a table and then join to that

DECLARE @CategoryIDs varchar(8000)

select @CategoryIDs=CheckListCategoryIds 
		from IS_AuditChecklistProjectScope 
		where IS_AuditChecklistProjectScope.[PrimaryProjectScopeId]=2

select AuditCategoryName 
from IS_AuditCategory t1
JOIN dbo.ParseValues(@CategoryIDs,',') f
ON f.Val = t1.AuditCategoryId 

ParseValues can be found in below link
