Ok, so one issue is that there are several different ways of measuring that. The page you linked to lists countries by Fearon's linguistic fractionalization analysis, under which - yes - it comes in at the bottom.
However: I would suggest that that analysis (in addition to primarily measuring fractionalization) is also primarily concerned with cultural and ethnic fractionalization, with linguistics making up a component of that.
However, there are also several other rankings - including those that are [A] looking at linguistic diversity (which is the phrasing you used in your quiz); and [B] primarily interested in linguistic diversity.
Among those include rankings done by UNESCO, and the Summer Institute of Linguistics, as seen at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linguistic_diversity_index.
You will notice that Yemen comes in rather in the middle of the pack here. Nowhere near the bottom...
