Three gods A , B , and C are called, in some order, True, False, and Random. True always speaks truly, False always speaks falsely, but whether Random speaks truly or falsely is a completely random matter. Your task is to determine the identities of A , B , and C by asking three yes-no questions; each question must be put to exactly one god. The gods understand English, but will answer in their own language, in which the words for yes and no are "da" and "ja", in some order. You do not know which word means which.
I can't believe that there is an sollution to this puzzle. I just can't. What botheres me though is his choice of response for the three: da and ja. Why those?
Only yes no questions
If you ask the random will he alternate between da and ja or will it be totally random?
That was why I was wondering Who I can ask a question to. Do I know which God is God B, or am totally oblivious to which God is A,B, or C AND which God is True, False, or Random.
When I ask the three questions, are they blanket questions? Who answers them? Must I first label the Gods 1, 2, and 3, so I know which God I am asking the question to?
