I havent used one of my accounts in about two years, and tried to access it but the account's security questions have nothing to do with me at all and I am not able to log into it all.
Yahoo no longer uses secret question and answers as the primary means to recover your account. The automated account recovery system chooses the best recovery method available for your account. If you are given the option to answer them that would mean the system found no other account recovery options registered for this account. The answers you enter must match EXACTLY to what is registered to this account. You will know the answer is correct when you see the word "Correct" in green at the end of your question.
Yahoo moved to using the email address and phone number entered into the Account Security page as the primary means to verify you are the rightful owner of this account. Yahoo sent an email to all account holders over a year ago informing them of this change and included instructions on how to check if you still had secret questions attached to your account and how to delete them. For those that had never set up a recovery email address or recovery phone number they provided instructions on how to add this information to your Account security page. For those that already had this information set up they ask that you verify that you could receive the account key code messages using the information listed as it is the ONLY way you will be able to recover your account.
Yahoo deactivates accounts that haven't been signed into at least once in the last 12 months. Once the account has been deactivated it's unlikely you can recover it. The following two articles can provide more information

My wife is trying to acces an old account because she doesn't remember the password. But the problem is that when Yahoo is asking her that security question, my wife doesn't remember the answer that she put it there. She allready tryed all possibilities and all answers that she think she put it there - but nothing. And, unfortunately she don't write a second e-mail adress or phone no to be the second recovery option.
The question is: there is any chance to recover it? Please, can somebody help me????
Thank you very much for all support and help.
Questions have not been used for recovery for some time.
Security questions are no longer used for verification. Delete them if they haven't been removed automatically. https://help.yahoo.com/kb/account/delete-havent-removed-automatically-sln4842.html
If you do not sign in to an account a minimum of once every 12 months it is removed and can not be recovered.
If you have been signed in recently the sign-in helper will get you in where you can change the password.
If your wife has questions she will have to post as we can not discuss her account with you.
