Do you think you can pass the civics test that immigrants take during their naturalization interview?

Here is a sample test, will you have a green INS van parked in front of your house after the test?

The real test is oral, and the test isn't multiple choice.

For the record, I missed three, one of them was about which form I would use to apply with, and that wasn't taught in school when I was a kid, and wouldn't have known the answer unless I had taken this test.

I missed 3, 8, and 13. :thumbsup:



For 13 though:

13. Which of the following is NOT one of the constitutional requirements to be eligible to become president?
[spacer][spacer][spacer]Must have lived in the United States for at least 14 years is not correct.
[spacer][spacer][spacer]Must have served as a governor


I thought there was only 2 requirements to be US president.

A. Be atleast 35 years of age.
B. Be a natural born citizen.

But I got the rest correct.

I have to relate a quick story regarding an experience with the INS, working in Sacramento California in a new housing project as an electrician, a very long time ago.

I had the occasion to witness the INS in action, at this time there was a large crew of land scape workers laying sod, now I won't go so far as to say that they were all Mexicans, but when the green INS van pulled into the neighborhood these workers disappeared like roaches distrubed by turning on the kitchen light in the dead of night. They went over fences, down alleys, under houses, they just flat disappeared. It was as if they had radar, no sooner had the van pulled into the neighborhood, they scattered, I've never seen anything like it since.

I sure that they figured it out, after all...they knew were these people were working, and what work they were doing, otherwise they wouldn't have been there.

When I took the US Constitution test in 8th grade, I passed with an "A".
May have forgotten some of it though. lol
There really is no need now for me to take this one.
I know I am a US citizen. :thumbsup:
But just for fun I took it anyways. My score was 90%.
I missed #'s 9 and 18. :flowers:

Like they say, "if you don't use it, you lose it". I used to be able to remember all 32 of Beethovens sanatas, the key, opus number, and their given names, now I'm lucky just to remember that there are 32 of them. :trumpet:

Ack, kind of ashamed..... I missed 3 as well.

I missed #3

3. In what year was the Constitution written?
1776 is not correct.
1787

For some reason i lumped the constitution in w/ the declaration of independence....

18

18. Who has the power to declare war?
The president is not correct.
Congress

I should have known that one from AP Us history, but in the past 6/7 years, i think most people would be messed up on that question :thumbsup:

And another question i forgot because i accidently closed the window...
