What happens if two deactivating and one activating group is present on a benzene ring?

We know that reactivity of benzene ring towards electrophilic reaction depends upon presence of group on benzene ring. Benzene gives electrophilic substitution reaction due to negative pi cloud formation , if there is EWG (electron withdrawing) group on benzene ring it's negativeness decreases and reactivity also decreases and due to resonance upcoming group goes at meta position only while in the presence of ERG (electron releasing groups) it's negative ness increases and reactivity increase and due to resonance upcoming group goes at ortho and para position .
If both EWG and ERG present on benzene ring then upcoming electrophile goes to ortho and para position  according to ERG group .
