You should totally count "Y" as a vowel in "Cyprus" as it's pronounced as a vowel. It's even in the stressed syllable! - And by your logic Egypt doesn't have even that one vowel, so having "only one vowel" would not apply to Egypt.

I'm really confused, why would Y ever be considered a vowel anyway?

For the purpose of this question, Y isn't counted. There is a disclaimer at the beginning of the quiz to avoid confusion. Like I said, this is my first quiz so if a lot of you guys out there think this still is a problem, I will gladly change it. As for Egypt, I'm pretty sure the first letter is a vowel...

You should replace that question because if Y isn't a vowel, then there are words without vowels which is not possible.

If the US, Canada and Russia all touch three oceans (presumably Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic) the Australia also has coastlines on three oceans (Indian, Pacific and Antarctic or Southern)

Some sources don't extend the Southern Ocean all the way to Australia. (When I was in school there was no Southern Ocean. It was divided among the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian.)

Would this be the same for South Africa, bordering the Atlantic, Southern and Pacific Oceans?

I think you should just drop the whole "vowel" thing, and replace it with something else, since only one of the five really has one vowel.

Vowels in the English language: A E I O U, no more, no less. You can contortion the letter Y from now to doomsday, it will NEVER be a vowel!

Y is totally a vowel as in when it makes a vowel sound. The word yes has one vowel, but the word why does not have 0 vowels, the Y is considered a vowel. Y will be a vowel when it makes a vowel sound until doomsday, it will SOMETIMES be a vowel.

Really should try to avoid having same answers to different questions. Many (like me) will get correct answers that they weren't even aware of.
