Remembering most frequently appearing numbers in certain elements of lists

    Hi,
    what would be an easy way to report most frequent elements of many lists?
    imagine
    10 2 5 1 3 5 10 3 2
    i want the answer
    10 3 5
    SO each element of a list would be checked for how frequently a certain number appears.
    Thanks.

      Here is one way to do it

      Thanks, it's a good solution, but I wanted to keep the length of the list, in my case 20. So I found a way by putting the following in the poly~ object with 20 instances and then packing the outputs:
