Delete through trigger

can delete records in trigger by using delete statements ?


if possible what are the possible trigger events ?


if not possible , what is the reason behind that ?   ple tell me this is one of the interview question to me .   



thank u


We cannot delete beacuse we are still updating the records, the context is not yet completed. We can however delete by creating a new instance of the record using new key word.


Eg: case c=new case(id=c.id);
