I wanted to clear the browsing history on my Android mobile, and followed guidelines suggested online, as follows:

Settings/ Navigate to Apps and tap that/ Scroll down to Chrome and tap on it/ Tap Clear Data and Clear Cache, to delete history. The only problem is that following that routine does not give the options to clear data or cache !! Is there a suitable way that I can follow to achieve the deletion of my browsing history instead?

Is it greyed out or not even an option?

how updated is the OS?

Open chrome browser, in the Menu (the 3 dots) to see all the settings.
Tap on History then tap on clear browsing data. You will have a choice of times.

Note: I don't use chrome so I had little to remove.
This worked in Android 6.0.1 which my phone is running.

I can test it on a different version on a tablet once I know what you are running.
