# The 'da' & 'ja' Puzzle

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 โdaโ and โjaโ, in some order. You do not know which word means which.

I'm sorry. I don't know.......

ask god A : are you truly ?

if he says "ja" then he is either true or random

or he is false or random.

if he says :"da" then again it would mean the same thing , wouldn't it ?
