Deleting a record

P: 24
I have a table 'a' and 'b'.
If I try to delete the record from 'a', not able to do it. Because, 'b' table is referencing the 'a' table.

create table a(id serial primary key,name varchar(10));

create table b(id serial,pid integer references a,comment varchar(100));

What is the way to delete a particular record from 'a' table?

First delete related records from b, or drop foreign key in b table.
