Here's some of the tougher questions given to individuals applying for citizenship in the civics exam. I got an 80%, which is the lowest you can get to qualify as passing. Latito got a 65%, and he's a freakin Candian. Lets see how well you do!

Do you have what it takes to become a citizen?
You answered 100% of questions correctly. Here's your rating:

85-100%: Welcome to the United States! (And, truth be told, you know more about this great land than most Americans.)


Easy.

Question 19 was kind of dumb, though. I took a 50/50 guess.

I got 70%

19 was stupid
why should I know 4 or 8? you would never need to know those off the top of your head

with any preparation, say like 5 minutes, you could get an easy 90-100 on this

Real Americans need no preparation.

"You answered 95% of questions correctly."

Somehow I even knew what INS form you needed to become a naturalized citizen. I just got the "Give me liberty of give me death" quote wrong.

Some of these questions are so silly... The test should focus on law, how the government works, and other things you need/it would help to know to be a productive citizen, not 200 year old quotes more suited for Jeopardy questions.

That said, I got a 90%. Didn't know the quote or what form I needed to fill out.
