Hi:

The query will be something like this:

select * from dept
where salary in ( select min(salary) from
(select salary from dept
order by salary desc)
where rownum <=2 )
0

SELECT max(salary) FROM dept WHERE salary< ( SELECT max(salary) FROM dept);

or

SELECT max(salary) FROM dept WHERE salary NOT IN (SELECT max(salary) FROM dept);

Try -
;with cte (rowno, deptname, empid, salary)
as
(select row_number() over (partition by deptname order by salary desc) as rowno
	,deptname, empid, salary
)
select * from cte where rowno = 2
