Sample table: employees

Sample Solution:

``````SELECT *
FROM employees
WHERE salary IN
(SELECT max(salary)
FROM employees
WHERE manager_id IN
(SELECT emp_id
FROM employees
WHERE emp_name = 'KAYLING'));
``````

Sample Output:

``` emp_id | emp_name | job_name | manager_id | hire_date  | salary  | commission | dep_id
--------+----------+----------+------------+------------+---------+------------+--------
65646 | JONAS    | MANAGER  |      68319 | 1991-04-02 | 2957.00 |            |   2001
(1 row)
```

Explanation:

The said query in SQL that retrieves all columns from the 'employees' table for all employees whose salary is equal to the maximum salary of employees who report to the manager with the name 'KAYLING'.

The WHERE clause filters the results to include only those employees whose salary is in the list of salaries obtained by the subquery.

The subquery that selects the maximum salary of all employees whose manager has the emp_name 'KAYLING'.

The WHERE clause in the outer subquery uses another subquery to obtain the emp_id of the employee whose emp_name is 'KAYLING'.
