I have one question about this:
Can I, for example, refer to the second or third God I will ask a question in my first question? E.g. "Is the third God I will ask a question a liar?"
I.e., is the order of asking the Gods known upfront, also by the Gods?

It's considered a brain teaser because after the $1.00 refund, each man has paid $9.00 for the room (9 x 3 = 27) and the bellboy has $2.00 thus $27.00 + $2.00 = $29.00. Where did the remaining $1.00 go?
