Nay nay on Cyprus, Egypt, and Kyrgyzstan. They have 2, 2, and 3 vowels, respectively. Y is a vowel in those names. (Si-prus; Ee-jipt; Keer-guh-stan) Chad stands alone with only 1.

Hungary, Italy, Libya, Myanmar, and Syria have three vowels. The Y is a vowel. (Hun-gar-ee; Ih-tal-ee; Lib-ee-uh; Mee-an-mar; See-ree-uh)

Ivory Coast and Vatican City have five vowels; their Ys are vowels. (I-ver-ee Coast; Va-ti-kan Sih-tee)

Is Myanmar really pronounced with three sylables in english? In my language (Slovak) and other slavic languages the root word Myanmar/Mjanmar is pronounced with two sylables, even though the actual word in Slovak has three sylables (Mjanmarsko)

Nice quiz idea, but you can't seriously think Egypt, Cyprus, or Kyrgyzstan have only one vowel. Same with Germany having two. Y is sometimes a vowel.

This is true. A vowel is dictated by whether it forms part of the vowel sound of a word. Does the word “my” have no vowel? Of course it does! “y” can generally be considered a vowel unless it’s makes a yuh sound, like in “yak”.

How does the Y in Uruguay and Paraguay act?

The "-ay" at the end of those words is a diphthong. It is the blend of two vowel sounds together, forming only one syllable. Both "a" and "y" in those countries are acting as vowels because they are both part of the diphthong (trouble hearing the diphthong? Hold the very very end of your sound at the end of saying way. You're saying something akin to "eeee", which is one of the diphthong sounds "y" makes).

I totally had to stop the clock even to come close to getting all of these, and even then I didn't. Also, I think Sao Tome may be in the wrong category (8 vowels, not 7).

Shout out to Kyrgyzstan for getting 9 letters in before remembering about vowels.
