same idea as previous question, but you need to extend the group by
and order it


SELECT category cat1,
       cat cat2,
       COUNT(*) quantity,
       COUNT(CASE WHEN TYPE = 'P' THEN 1 END) type_p,
       COUNT(CASE WHEN TYPE = 'T' THEN 1 END) type_t
  FROM yourtable
GROUP BY category, cat
ORDER BY cat1, cat2 DESC;
