Group by and Order by in SQL
Group By:
Group By will aggregate records by the specified columns which allows you to perform aggregation functions on non-grouped columns (such as SUM, COUNT, AVG, etc).

A group by performs a grouping operation.Group by is applied based of aggregation.

Group By allows you to take your result set, group it into logical groups and then run aggregate queries on those groups. You could for instance select all employees, group them by their workplace location and calculate the average salary of all employees of each workplace location.

It is a way to sub-total your results,or perform some other 'aggregate' functions on them.

Order By:
Order By alters the order in which items are returned. an order by sorts.

Order By allows you to sort the result set according to different criteria, such as first sort by name from a-z, then sort by the price highest to lowest.

Order by uses the sorting algorithms however both uses indexing applied on table.

It is a simply a way to sort your results. It doesn't affect what shows up in your result set,only what order it is displayed.

The difference is exactly what the name implies: a group by performs a grouping operation, and an order by sorts
