No you can't delete a question that has been answered .. and you can't delete an answer once 'best answer' has been chosen either.
You CAN make it Anonymous though.

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.

No you cannot delete YA questions after they have been answered. The question and ALL the answers become Verizon Media property. Even if the question is reported enough times that it is deleted from the YA DISPLAY, the question and all the anzwers are still in digital data bases. That is WHY, if you successfully appeal, the question and all the answers can be restored to the YA display.
Verizon can sell questions and answers to other businesses. Yahoo Inc. did do that before it died.

If the question has answers, the only real way to remove them is as violations. You will need to get friends and network to report. The easiest thing to do is go to the question and change the asker to anonymous. You will then be the only one who knows it is you. The staff in the past would remove one or two, but no longer.

No, you can not delete your own question once it has been answered. Once it has been answered the delete option is removed. You can go anonymous if you wish or hope other users report your question. But you can't report your own question like someone who should never answer questions here said.

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

No, but you can try reporting your own question or you can make it anonymous.
