locking – Need sample DELETE Query where SQL Server by default takes PAGELOCK instead of ROWLOCK

I need a sample DELETE Query where SQL Server by default takes an X lock at Page Level and not at Row Level.

BACKGROUND:
In our purging SP, we are using DELETE Query with ROWLOCK hint and I want to proof to my manager that if we remove that ROWLOCK Hint, SQL Server might go to acquire locks at PAGE Level. We are suspecting that LOCK ESCALATION is happening because of the ROWLOCK hint which we have explicitly mentioned in the DELETE Query.
