We have a termset with parent term name "State" and with child term "City". I want to show all child terms "City" in a dropdownlist. Who can I retrive only child terms from this termset?

you need to first finding the termset "State".

for ex: TaxonomySession session = new TaxonomySession(SPContext.Current.Site); // Get a reference to the store TermStore store = session.TermStores[_tTaxonomyField.SspId];

      TermSet _termSet = store.GetTermSet(_tTaxonomyField.TermSetId);

       foreach (Term termSet in _termSet.Terms)
             // all child term found here

hope this help.
