Abstract: In this paper some necessary and sufficient conditions are obtained to guarantee the oscillation for bounded and all solutions of second order nonlinear neutral delay difference equations. In Theorem 5 and Theorem 8, We have studied the oscillation criteria as well as the asymptotic behavior, where was established some sufficient conditions to ensure that every solution are either oscillates or  as  Examples are given to illustrate the obtained results.
