I'm sorry but if you entered your account recovery email incorrectly there's nothing you can do about unless you can sign into that account to change what was entered.  If that was the only account recovery option available you're not going to be able to recover this account.

Can you tell me what sin you crated by doing this?  It's hard to read your post when you post it in a code box. 

 

Here's how you can change what you've entered.  Be aware you will need to be able to sign into your account in order to use the information in the article below.

Thus must be an old account as they are the only ones that would allow you to enter a recovery option without requiring you to verify what you entered was accurate.

 

When was the last time you had successfully signed into this account to check your emails?

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
