what have you tried?

It looks like you can do it with some subqueries and a NOT IN, but that would likely be very inefficient.. perhaps joining against itself and doing some sort of group by?

In to the subquery you can select max(sales) group by Division then select * from SAMPLE where product not in (subquery) eg

select
    t.*
from
    `sample` t
where
    t.`product` not in (
        select
            s.`product` from (
            select
                 m.`product`
                ,max(m.`sales`)
            from
                `sample` m
            group by m.`Division`
        ) s
    )
order by
     t.`Division` asc
    ,t.`sales` desc;

if your MySQL version is 5.7 then before this query set sql_mode

set sql_mode=(select replace(lower(@@sql_mode),'only_full_group_by',''));

@ryantroop, I am new in mysql. I tried with INNER JOIN, GROUP BY and NOT in only. But i didn't get expected result.

You can define function

delimiter $$
create function not_max_of_division(
     p_product varchar(30)
    ,p_division varchar(30)
) returns boolean
begin
    declare v_max int;
    declare v_not_max boolean;
    select
        max(t.`sales`) into v_max
    from
        `sample` t
    where
        t.`Division` = p_division;
    select
        t.`sales` <> v_max into v_not_max
    from
        `sample` t
    where
        t.`product` = p_product;
    return v_not_max;
end $$
delimiter ;

and then

select t.* from `sample` t
where not_max_of_division(t.`product`, t.`Division`)
order by
     t.`Division` asc
    ,t.`sales` desc;

(do not need set sql_mode)

A dirty one:

SELECT DISTINCT a.*
FROM `products` AS a                   
  LEFT JOIN `products` AS b            
      ON a.product_id = b.product_id AND a.sales < b.sales
WHERE b.sales IS NOT NULL
