I have got as far as working out that you need to formulate the questions in such a way that it doesn’t matter which of “da” and “ja” means “yes” (and which means “no) – you just don’t have enough questions.

So I considered the following question: “Are you FALSE?”

– RANDOM could reply either “yes” or “no”

Now let’s consider the question “If I asked you “Are you FALSE?” would you respond “da”?”

If “da” means “yes”:
– TRUE will reply “no” (or “ja”)
– FALSE will reply “yes” (or “da”)
– RANDOM could reply either “yes” or “no” (“da” or “ja”)

If “da” means “no”:
– TRUE will reply “yes” (or “ja”)
– FALSE will reply “no” (or “da”)
– RANDOM could reply either “yes” or “no” (“da” or “ja”)

So you can see that we now have a question to which TRUE will ALWAYS reply “ja” and FALSE will ALWAYS reply “da” (irrespective of which of “ja” and “da” means “yes” and which means “no”).

I feel like we just need to get another question out of the way first, one that helps us identify at least one god that is not RANDOM, so we can ask the above question to it, to work out if it’s TRUE or FALSE…

Hope this helps!
