The U.S. Citizenship test is a bit tougher than you’d imagine it is! I did very well in history and government, and I even write about politics on a daily basis, but there are questions in here that I couldn’t answer.
Could you pass the citizenship test? Here are some of the questions:
- What is the supreme law of the land?
- What does the Constitution do?
- The idea of self-government is in the first three words of the Constitution. What are these words?
- What is an amendment?
- What do we call the first ten amendments to the Constitution?
- What is one right or freedom from the First Amendment?
- How many amendments does the Constitution have?
- What did the Declaration of Independence do?
- What are two rights in the Declaration of Independence?
- What is freedom of religion?
- What is the economic system in the United States?
- What is the “rule of law”?
- Name one branch or part of the government.
- What stops one branch of government from becoming too powerful?
- Who is in charge of the executive branch
- Who makes federal laws?
- What are the two parts of the U.S. Congress?
- How many U.S. Senators are there?
- We elect a U.S. Senator for how many years?
- Who is one of your state’s U.S. Senators now?
Those are the first 20 questions on the practice test. Do you know the answers to them, without looking them up?
