Given the following Products table:

 

Fetching_Records_by_Sections_1

As you can see:

  • each row represents one product.
  • The table has three columns: ProductID, ProductName and ProuctPrice, which contain information about each product.
  • The ProductPrice values range between 10 and 300.

Based on the price range, we can say that there are three product groups : those with a price range of 1-100, those with a price range of 101-200, and those with a price range of 201-300.

Write a SELECT statement that retrieves the lowest two prices for each group.

If you want to take this challenge one step forward:

The script below used a series of simple INSERT statements to populate Products table.

Use a TSQL loop to achieve the same goal. Then, try using recursive SELECT statement.
