This seems like the same question you already asked. One of the possibilities I gave you was to use the delete command, e.g.
...if the numbering in the structure is the same as what you showed in the sequence window.
OR, you could use the mouse to drag a box in the sequence window, which will select on the structure, and then you could use command:
You might want to try some of the tutorials if you want to become familiar with Chimera:
I hope this helps,
