And now back to the usual silliness

Thanks to Grandmere Mimi for this one

Could You Pass the U.S. Citizenship Test?

The folks at MSNBC give you the chance to see if you could do it. From the site:

When immigrants want to become Americans, they must take a civics test as part of their naturalization interview before a Citizenship and Immigration Services (INS) officer. The questions are usually selected from a list of 100 sample questions that prospective citizens can look at ahead of the interview (though the examiner is not limited to those questions). Some are easy, some are not.

I took the test and scored a 95% The one I missed doesn't surprise me at all (Question 19 which is about INS procedure. No doubt the folks who really take this test are familiar with it). So I would certainly pass this step in seeking my citizenship. Honestly other than question 19 which I took a total guess at the questions should be pretty simple. There was one question (#8) that gave me pause. Everything else was either obvious or easy to figure out.

So I throw down the gauntlet. See if it's as easy as I think it is. I missed one question. How 'bout you?

I guessed them all right. But I'm old enough to have a decent public education.
