I didn't select "Ym mil naw pump pump roedd e'n byw yng nghefn gwlad." as an option because it didn't say "yn y gefn gwlad" at the end. Is it OK to leave out the "y" from this sentence?

Apologies for encountering this, we deleted this complicated sentence a while ago but the system hasn't removed it yet.

The English sentence is misleading and should be .....living in the countryside.

The Welsh then is .....yn y cefn gwlad'
