I think the "general" consensus is: you rather prefer to keep your answers around. See Should I delete my own downvoted answer? for example. The point is: anything that is "worth" asking about in the real world comes with context and nuances. Therefore questions that can be answered "100 percent" correctly are very rare (or ...

If your answer adds anything helpful to the post, I think you should keep it. And if the only reason you are considering deletion is because you think people are more inclined to look at the problem if no answers are given, that's not a good reason to delete a possibly helpful answer.

You're getting results for all posts, not only questions. The first post in your search results is of an answer, that's what the "A:" prefix means. The second result is a question, indicated by the "Q:". If you would like questions only, then add is:q to your search and you will not see answers.

To be clear it's not showing the questions twice - it's actually showing you the question and then the answers to the question (if there are any). Search returns both questions and answers. If you want to only include questions in your results, then you can include a filter of is:question. You can see the Advanced Search options by clicking Advanced Search ...

One is answer and other one is question. If you want to filter further, you can use is:q or is:a in the search bar. Related help center article: How do I search?
