Inherit root permission

I have a situation where the main script /application will be part of the 
sudo list so its executing with root permissions. I want to verify two 
        1. Does the child process inherit the root permissions? I believe 
the answer is yes.
        2. If another script/application gets started from the main 
application, does this also inherit the root permissions? Or would this 
script/application              need to be part of the sudo list.
