    No, not if they've been answered.

    Not after one person has answered you question.

    You can only delete them if they have no answers. Click on 'Edit' beside your question and then delete it.

    You can't delete your question unless it has no answers. Just click on the blue edit tab and select Delete. But once a question has an answer the delete option is removed. If you can't delete it and don't want to be associated with the question make it anonymous.

    But there is a secret way of deleting it. Just ask the question in an unused Tab and keep it open. If you want to delete it and it has answers go to the open Tab with that question. It will show no answers and just delete it. It works but it is a coward way of doing things.

    IF your question on Yahoo Answers has no answers yet, you can just go into your question and select Edit>Delete. (make sure your mobile device is in desktop mode, if using a mobile)

    IF your question on Yahoo Answers DOES have ANY answers, it cannot be deleted. The only way to get it removed if it has answers from others, from that point on, is to have enough accounts report it as a violation, so the system removes it from the display. You cannot edit or change the info you posted, either. All you can do is add updates to clarify it, or make yourself Anonymous (Edit>Post as Anonymous) to hide your identity.

    This is probably the single most asked question, over time, in the Yahoo Answers subcategory. You can save points and time in the future, by doing a search at the top of the page (type in your question or keywords and press "Search Answers"), to see if the question you have has already been asked/answered. How to delete questions has been asked/answered literally thousands of times since the site was created.

    Nope, unless a moderator here finds the question offensive and deletes it, or someone reports your question for possibly breaking the community guidelines.

    Only if you don't have any responses.

    There's a way to do it if you do have responses, but most people who know how don't disclose it.
