Hello
When you created the account did you register an alternate email address or phone number to which you have accessed?

Hi again,

Sorry but without the security question and a recovery alternate email or phone number, it is impossible to recover your account as Yahoo has no way to determine that you are the legitimate account owner.

I suggest you create a new account.

Regards
