GPO Inheritance

Hi experts, this may be a basic question, but are GPO's inherited from the default domain policy on down?

So for example if the tree was something basic like below, will the users at the bottom apply GPO's from all of the GPO's they are in up to the top of the tree? Or only in the specific one they are in?


Default Domain Policy GPO
- User group organizational unit GPO
   -Location organizational unit GPO
    - Users

how can I tell if I have inheritance blocked?
Two ways:
1. By looking at the icon/image of OU. If being blocked there is a blue circle with white exclamation mark
2. Right-click OU and see if there is a tick next to "Block Inheriteance". If there is then it is enabled, if there is isn't then it is not blocked
