If you mean you want to delete a question at Experts-Exchange, here is what I found in the help section:

To delete a question without comments, please follow these steps:

(1) Log into your Experts Exchange account.
(2) Go to the question you would like to delete.
(3) Click on Delete Question located below your question. You will be redirected to the Delete Question Request Page.
(4) Click on Delete My Question.

You could, of course, always click on the "Request Attention" button and ask a moderator to delete the question for you.

You don't see a link that looks like the 'x Delete Question' image I posted, below your question there?

i.e. right below the shaded part with
