I think something wrong with the given solution for this topic.
Offered query

SELECT STRFTIME('%d', order_date), COUNT(STRFTIME('%d', order_date))
FROM bakery

gives the first date in a table and total number of rows

STRFTIME(’%d’, order_date) COUNT(STRFTIME(’%d’, order_date))
16 30

My solution is

  STRFTIME('%Y-%m-%d', order_date) order_date,
  COUNT(*) order_quantity
  STRFTIME('%d', order_date);

which results in six dates and quantities of orders on each date

order_date order_quantity
2020-08-16 9
2020-08-17 5
2020-08-18 6
2020-08-19 2
2020-08-20 6
2020-08-21 2

Instruction for the last step is:
“Use STRFTIME() with the COUNT() function to find out how many orders were made on each day”
Nothing to indicate that the output should be sorted in descending order.
