The Three Gods

Three Gods are called, in no particular order, True, False, and Random.

  • True always speaks truly
  • False always speaks falsely
  • 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 all questions 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 yes and which means no. How can you still figure which God is True, which is False, and which is Random?
