Could You Pass the U.S. Naturalization Test?

Applicants for U.S. citizenship must correctly answer 6 out of 10 questions selected from 100 possible questions in order to pass the civics segment of the U.S. Naturalization test.  Here are some sample questions from Mental Floss:

1. How many amendments does the Constitution have?
2. What is the economic system in the United States?
3. Name your U.S. Representative.
4. What are two Cabinet-level positions?
5. Who is the Chief Justice of the United States now?
6. Who lived in America before the Europeans arrived?
7. The Federalist Papers supported the passage of the U.S. Constitution. Name one of the writers.
8. What is one thing Benjamin Franklin is famous for?
9. Before he was President, Eisenhower was a general. What war was he in?
10. What did Susan B. Anthony do?



  1. Good! You can be a citizen. I forgot how many amendments we had.

  2. 90%. Don't know why but was thinking Scalia not Roberts chief justice.
    So, how many amendments did you think it had?
