With well over 100 posts we would have that you have learned something from the suggestions we have provided in helping you with your previous problems. What have you tried to solve this problem on your own?

What shell are you using?

What operating system are you using?

Instead of searching the internet, why don't you look back through all of the solutions you have been given to solve your previous problems and use what you have learned from those solutions to try come up with a very simple nawk script that will do what you have asked for here?

I tried below command but it gave me the record with one decimal as well.

Code:
awk -F"," '$2!~/\.[0-9][0-9]$/ {print $0}' test
