Hi Nara,
In Chimera you can hide (undisplay) the atoms, ribbon, or whatever is  
shown, or you can delete those parts you are sure you don't want.

In your session, it looks like you already selected the part you don't  
want, chain A.  To hide those ribbons, choose from the menu

Actions... Ribbon... hide

or, to delete that part if you never want to see it again, choose

Actions... Atoms/Bonds... delete

The Actions menu applies to your selection, which is chain A.  If you  
hide it, it will still be selected, until you clear the selection or  
select something else.  If nothing is selected, the Actions will apply  
to everything, so be careful not to choose "delete" unless you are sure  
what you want to delete is selected!  After you delete the selection,  
nothing will be selected.

You could also do the same things using the commands "~ribbon sel" and  
"delete sel" - I hope this helps,
