    $\begingroup$ You cannot delete that particular question because it has an upvoted answer. You have solicited work from the community and received it; deleting the question would also delete the answers written to help you, which is not fair to the people that wrote them. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty May 6 '16 at 11:49

    $\begingroup$ Note, however, that there's no real need to delete questions just because they're closed; closed questions can still be valuable markers either to other questions or as indicators of what is and is not on-topic here. If a closed question should really be deleted, the system will delete it automatically without needing intervention. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty May 6 '16 at 11:53

    $\begingroup$ For clarity, the linked question was deleted (due to its negative score) when its owner account was removed, as per point 11 in meta.stackexchange.com/q/5221. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty Nov 2 '17 at 11:34

If a "delete" link appears below the question, at the left just under the tags, then click that.

If you don't see that link, it means that something about the question or one of its answers makes it worth keeping. There are various reasons this can happen.
