Cascade Update: A subsequent change to a record will automatically generate an update in all related records.

Cascade Delete: A subsequent deletion of a record will automatically cause a deletion of all related records.

Cascade delete automatically deletes all child rows when parent row is deleted.

So the answer should be true.

The cascade update is On means when there is primary key relationship between table then it deletes the Data in child table when the parent table data is deleted.

Use the ON DELETE CASCADE option to specify whether you want rows deleted in a child table when corresponding rows are deleted in the parent table. If you do not specify cascading deletes, the default behavior of the database server prevents you from deleting data in a table if other tables reference it.

I think it should be true (lock it). As on delete cascade tells, child row will be automatically deleted when its associated parent row deletes.

Answer is false.

Because UPDATE is specially for change the data. And DELETE is remove unwanted rows.
