I don't want the answer to this question but I just want someone to guide me the right way.

Following is the question... enter image description here

My question is..

Where is the clue in the question for me to understand that I, as developer, have to choose look-up relationship for this situation? As far as my knowledge is concerned, in look-up relationships, if we delete the parent, there is no effect on child.

[PS: I was asked by an admin not to post certification question. I respect that. I suppose this is the right way to ask.]

The detail record inherits the sharing and security settings of its master record. is it now clear? – Artur Kępczyński Mar 17 '14 at 13:43
THnx for the info! – MnZ Oct 22 '14 at 20:27

First thing you can identify is the OWD setting for the objects, using the most restricted user in the requirement. Then try to eliminate the options which does not fit OWD setting.

I hope this helps.
