Hi, Pacotomi,
try this:

In[26]:= yourlist = {{1, 3}, {4, 3}, {2, 5}, {7, 9}};

                 Table[yourlist[[i, 2]], {i, 1, Length[yourlist]}] // Max

Out[27]= 9

Best, A.

 Suppose a list


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?
