No, I certainly did not !!! 😠

But, anyway, is this solution correct in any language?
Is there a language where the order of the letters not bring z as a solution to this problem?

In Swedish, as an example, z is the solution and the next three letters beyond z is å, ä and ö, which are to be treated as three separate letters. The Swedish alphabet is therefore richer than the primitive English alphabet. 😏
And, if I am not mistaken, the Vietnamese alphabet is still richer in letters.

the only way for 'z' not to work would be if another letter follows 'y' in an alpabet for a different language... i cant think of any where the first 25 letters would match and then a different letter to 'z' is used - would be a good one to use though

In Latvian 'z' comes after 'v'. We don't have a 'y' nor as 'x', 'w' and 'q'.
