For each episode, we have n no of Adviseserialno which is incrementing by 1

For ex Epsiodeid 1 has adv serial no as follows

   1    1
   1     2
    1    3
   1     4

I think something like this will work.

SELECT Episodeid, Adviseserialno, COUNT(Adviseserialno) as counter
FROM  Trn_OrderItemAdvise
GROUP BY Episodeid
HAVING COUNT(Adviseserialno) > 1
0

Unfortuantely, that is going to produce an error.  You cannot include a column (Adviseserialno) in a SELECT that is not in an aggregate function and is not included in the GROUP BY clause.

I think you mean (no points please):
SELECT  Episodeid,
        Adviseserialno,
        COUNT(*) AS counter
FROM    Trn_OrderItemAdvise
GROUP BY Episodeid, Adviseserialno
HAVING  COUNT(*) > 1
