Select statement Query SQL

Hi Experts,
I need to create this report in sql by selecting the last record for each referralID. As you see below in the table i have the same referralID many times and i need to select 1 record per each referralID. That would be the last one entered, or the one with highest number of "StatusUpdateID". Suggestions?

Here is how the table looks like.
StatusUpdateID          ReferralID         Q1         Q2             Q3
1                                    685                      1           1                 2
2                                    685                      1            1                 1
3                                    685                      1           0                 0
4                                    688                       0           0                 1
5                                    688                      1            1                 1
6                                    689                      1              1               1
