109 Refill cartridge                 350.00         13
110 Mouse                            250.00         12
```

Sample Solution:

``````-- Selecting the average of 'pro_price' and the company name from the result of an inner join between 'item_mast' and 'company_mast' tables
SELECT AVG(pro_price), company_mast.com_name
-- Specifying the tables to retrieve data from ('item_mast' as the left table and 'company_mast' as the right table)
FROM item_mast
-- Performing an inner join based on the equality of 'pro_com' in 'item_mast' and 'com_id' in 'company_mast'
INNER JOIN company_mast
ON item_mast.pro_com = company_mast.com_id
-- Grouping the results by the company name
GROUP BY company_mast.com_name;
``````

Output of the Query:

```avg			com_name
5000.0000000000000000	Samsung
650.0000000000000000	iBall
1475.0000000000000000	Epsion
500.0000000000000000	Frontech
250.0000000000000000	Zebronics
3200.0000000000000000	Asus
```

Explanation:

The said SQL query is selecting the average price of all products (AVG(pro_price)) and the company name (com_name) from the tables item_mast and company_mast, and grouping the results by the company name.
The query is using an INNER JOIN to combine the data from the two tables, linking the 'pro_com' column in item_mast to the 'com_id' column in company_mast.
