This quiz makes no sense. None of these have the "j" sound.

yes, they do. It's not "j" as in the English alphabet. It's based on the International Phonetic Alphabet. /j/ in the IPA equals the sound that all these countries start with. Example: Yemen /'jɛmən/

The English "j" would be written as /dʒ/ in IPA. Example: Japan /dʒəˈpæn/
