In this scenario the Gods would answer thus:

H - N to Question 1, N to Question 2
S - Y to Question 1, Y to Question 2
R - Y to Question 1, Y to Question 2

Possible responses to the three questions would then be:

H&S - NNY
H&R - NNY
S&H - YYN
S&R - YYY
R&H - YYN
R&S - YYY

So besides the randomcant and the swindlecant having the same responses to the questions, because the words for "yes" and "no" are unknown we cannot distinguish between NNY and YYN.

according to the question, R would not answer the ques. as 'yes' if the others' reply is no... and would not answer the ques. as 'no' if other's answer is yes and thus we can distinguish b/w them

It has been a long time, but i think the Randomcant God would answer "yes" if only one of the other Gods would answer the same question with a "yes". If both of the other Gods answer the same way the Randomcant answers "no".
