The most difficult question so far...

"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."

This puzzle is very difficult. If you can't solve the problem, don't feel too bad about it, its more your reasoning for your answer that defines an intellectual mind from a not-so intelligent person.

Do you ask one of gods if each of the others are telling the truth.

eg ask God A "Does God B tell the truth?"
then ask "Does god C tell the truth?"
then ask "Do you tell the truth?"

FUCK!!!!

I thought I was one the right trck here untill I realised that asking if the Random guy tells the truth isnt a 'yes' 'no' answer
