I created a table which has two colums and the two columns are foreign keys.
So this table has two parent tables.
If I delete record in one parent table will the row in child gets deleted or what would happen ?

In general If I have a table with several parent tables and one row in deleted from one parent table how would delete on cascade behave .

Why didn't you just try it? Then you'd know for sure. As it is, you'll just have to take the word of some totally unknown stranger for it, and trust that they're not maliciously deceiving you....

If the foreign keys are set to On Delete Cascade then a delete from any of the parent tables will delete all the children for that primary key value.
