If you look for the place where aggregates are updated with values from a row, see
Item_*::add() in the aforementioned file.
I did find the methods you mentioned, however, am unable to figure out the actual flow of
execution of such a select query I mentioned above. Like, from start(a query is fired) to
finish(results are displayed). Can you please help me in this regard?
