Note: At any point, you can ask for “Try a different question”. Google can ask for any information (security questions) likethe month and year’ you’ve created the email id or ‘your pet’s name’ and so on. It will allow you to reset your password only after proper authentication and verification. So try to provide maximum and accurate information.  

If you are not sure about an answer, just provide your best guess. According to Google, “It also helps to submit your answers from a computer you’ve used in the past”.
