How to select a small portion of an image in illustrator cs6?
Suppose, two lines intersects each other as '+' like symbol.
Now i want to delete the extended portion of '+' and want to make it as 'T' shape.
But when i select the extended portion of a line, whole line is selected.
So i want to know that, is there any way to select a portion intentionally having any size that may be so much small or big in adobe illustrator?
It depends a bit on the situation, but the most generic answer is to use shape builder.
- Select the lines you want to participate in the cutting and cut.
- Activate the shape builder tool (Shift + M)
Alt + Click or drag on line you do not want to keep.

This all depends a bit on your base understanding of how illustrator works. Direct selection suggested by @Avery_illson might work if your line is already split naturally at that point. But illustrator does not do so automatically just because 2 lines cross. Other options incude:
- Scissors tool
- Object → Path → Divide Objects Below
