A 20 question sample of the current citizenship test. For the record I missed 3 for an 85%.

20 for 20. A couple looked like "gotchas" to me.

How many are you SUPPOSED to get?

Yeah, I'm in, also at 85%. Mostly for overthinking one & underthinking another.

"We have picked some of the more difficult ones" of the 100 questions on the base question list? Oh, dear.

CRZ -- there's a beakdown of percentages:

19/20 because I read WWI as WWII and selected FDR instead of Wilson.

Other than that...easy as cake. To be a real American citizen these days there should be questions about Miley Cyrus on there.

19/20. I can't believe I got the World War I and House of Representatives questions right, but got the number of Supreme Court Justices wrong.

85% for me as well

Two were ones that I knew it was between two answers and my educated guesses were wrong, and the other was because strangely none of the history classes I ever took dealt much with WWI. There's a weird gap in my American History knowledge from the Spanish American war to the build up to WWII.

Yay 95%. It would have been 100% if I knew when the Constitution was written.

3 wrong, but 2 were boneheads. I thought the WWI question said WWII, and I do know who Susan B. Anthony was, I was just rushing it. No idea who the Chief Justice is.

90%. And honestly, I'm embrassed that I missed the one about the three branches of government. I thought I would had done better since I studied American history and government like nuts throughout high school.

95% due to misreading the one about the 1st Amendment.

19/20 - the first words of the Preamble to the Constitution do not count as the first words of the Constitution. Stupid semantics.
