MAX finds the highest values in a column or part of a column

MAX is an aggregate function it is normally used with GROUP BY.

 SELECT region, MAX(name)
    FROM bbc
   GROUP BY region 

With a GROUP BY region statement each region shows up just once. The MAX column gives the "largest" name in the region in the context of strings this is the last name alphabetically.

SELECT region, MAX(name)
  FROM bbc
 GROUP BY region
SELECT region, MAX(name)
  FROM bbc
 GROUP BY region
