When a field is deleted from a page layout, is it also deleted from the object?

I got this question wrong on a practice exam I took on proprofs.com. Can some please help me understand why this is so? Here is a screenshot of the question.

Hi friend,

It seems you have asnwered yes. But the answer is No.
If you delete a field from the page layout, the field will not be deleted from the Object.

Lucas,
Thank you, but I was interested in why the answer is no. I was under the impression that a field is the most granular way to control information and that it is kind of like a child in a parent-child relationship.
