No, they would get the same version back.

Unfortunately, nope.

We do not have an automated way of making a problem unsolved, no.

If this is for practice (i.e., not an online exam or anything), you  
can set the problem type to "practice" - in that case, the students  
can make their own problem unsolved and get a new randomization.
