    SQL> alter table rnny drop column
    rnnno_id casde constraint;

    What is the purpose of the cascade constraint
    clause in this statement?

    If the column you intend to drop belongs to any PK or UK constraint, the CASCADE CONSTRAINTS clause will drop any foreign key constraint (defined on this table as well as on any other table) that reference the column to be dropped. It also drops any check constraints on this table that reference the column to be dropped.
