    Hello Avnish,

    If child have two master records and one is deleted then the record is deleted and placed in the recycle bin.

    Junction object records are deleted when either associated master record is deleted and placed in the Recycle Bin. If both associated master records are deleted, the junction object record is deleted permanently and cant be restored.

    Few important points (usually interview  type Questions of salesforce ):

    One Object can have only two Master-Detail relationships.
    If we delete record A (First Master detail relationship is always primary)  – then child record c will be deleted.
    If we delete record B then in this case also child record C will be deleted.
    If we delete record c then only C will be deleted , master record will not be deleted.
    If child C has two Master record A and B, Where A is primary relation then Child record C will inherit the look and feel of Parent object A.

    Hope this helps.

    If parent record is deleted then child is also deleted in Master-detail.
