Is this homework? What have you tried so far?

Here's a hint: use GROUP BY and COUNT(*) in a CTE or subquery to find out how many of each product there are, and then use MAX to find out which one has the most.

I don't know... being an intern means that you're supposed to be learning some things from the people you're working for. You should have a mentor that's been assigned to you. I'd ask the mentor to show you. Nothing better than face-to-face training/learning.

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
