Imagine a table which contains records for all weekly number of bugs
discovered by each QA analysts in the team for one year. Please describe a
simple SQL statement for identifying a winner (an employee who found the
biggest number of bugs during that year) by writing one statement?

This is a simple exercise made difficult by having to imagine what the table and data look like. Read the link in my sig "please read this" and provide DDL for the table and DML for some sample data.
Otherwise you may have to imagine what the simple SQL statement might look like ;-)

This is a terrible homework problem. :-P It doesn't tell you what to do if there's a tie. ;-)

Some hints to solve this (and there are many different ways). Lookup the following in Books Online.

GROUP BY
SUM()
MAX()
ORDER BY
COMMON TABLE EXPRESSIONS (CTEs)
RANK()/DENSERANK()
ROW_NUMBER()

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
