How to delete an object only in a single viewport?

A - answer A viewport is only a view to a common (single) model. So you cannot delete an entity from a single viewport.

Of course you can also have objects individually inserted only in paperspace - such objects are not part of the model and can be deleted individually in layouts.

You can also suppress the object display (without deleting it) - since AutoCAD 2008, there are individual layer settings (off/on) per viewport.
