The question that should be asked should be such that we know the answer of that particular question.Right!!
So the most probable one in this case is "What do you think Which is peaceful,Heaven or Hell?".
We know Heaven is where peace of soul lies.So we will quickly judge the person who is speaking truth and who is false.
