mylist = {{1, 2}, {3, 4}, {8, 3}, {0, 4}};

Select[mylist, #[[2]] == Max[mylist[[All, 2]]] &]

{{3, 4}, {0, 4}}

Cases[mylist, {_, Max[mylist[[All, 2]]]}]

{{3, 4}, {0, 4}}

=============
Hi,
 Suppose a list

mylist={{1,2},{3,4},{8,3}}

I would like to extract the element {i,j} of mylist for which j is max
(here, it is the second one {3,4}).

Somebody could help me, please?
