By default, administrator accounts are enabled for self-service password reset, and a strong default two-gate password reset policy is enforced. This policy may be different from the one you have defined for your users, and this policy can't be changed. You should always test password reset functionality as a user without any Azure administrator roles assigned. With a two-gate policy, administrators don't have the ability to use security questions. The two-gate policy requires two pieces of authentication data, such as an email address, authenticator app, or a phone number. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/concept-sspr-policy#administrator-password-policy-differences Therefore I would say N N Y as SecAdmin1 and BillAdmin1 are both administrators. NOTE: I have tried to test in lab but was unsuccessful (somehow SSPR isn't even recognized as being enabled, hell one of the user is taking forever to show an updated assigned role).

SSPR for Administrators isn't enabled on the tenant. SSPR for Administrators (SSPR-A) was the first implementation of SSPR. After SSPR for Users (SSPR-U) was introduced, users could have two separate configurations. The old SSPR-A implementation is used when an Azure AD account has an admin role, such as Global Administrator or Billing Administrator. However, the SSPR management on the Azure portal is for SSPR-U only. Therefore, SSPR-A might not be enabled on the tenant. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/azure/active-directory/password-writeback-error-code-sspr-009

So after some research it does look like "Security questions aren't used as an authentication method during a sign-in event. Instead, security questions can be used during the self-service password reset (SSPR) process to confirm who you are. Administrator accounts can't use security questions as verification method with SSPR." so it means the administrator cannot use security questions as verification method for SSPR. so it would be N N Y . check the link the first line of the link.

Number of security questions required to reset password is 3. My opinion is that user can also not self reset the password by answering just one question. So the Answer should be N, N, N

Re-read the question. They are asking about if user1 will have to answer this question (but no ONLY this question). Of course user1 must answer the 2 qustions. They are not asking about reset password, but answer that question
