Hi Nosi...
How can I display name and highest salary which is Mark 30000 using ask or any other tool
As far as I know there is only one platform that has the ask utility and that is the ancient AMIGA family of computers.
I assume you mean 'awk' so have you searched this site for similar types of questions and/or attempted to modify or create an attempt yourself?
Also, OS type and platform is always a great help too.

If it arranged like this, two fields per line, then you can sort by field 2 numerically
sort -k2n records. txt

Pipe this to a tool that displays the first (head-1) or the last line (tail-1).
