Could You Pass The Civics Test To Become A U.S. Citizen?
Do you think you could pass the test that immigrants take to obtain citizenship?
According to the U.S. News World Report's article about the "Center For The Study Of The American Dream" at Xavier University, one in three Americans would fail. That is appalling. AJ and Nikki decided to take the test to see how they would do.
Here are some sample questions from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' official website:
We elect a U.S. Senator for how many years?
How many amendments does the Constitution have?
Answer: The Constitution has 27 amendments.
In what month do we vote for President?
If both the President and the Vice President can no longer serve, who becomes President?
Answer: The Speaker of the House.
How many justices are on the Supreme Court?
HOW DID WE DO?
AJ got a perfect score.
Nikki got one wrong.
By the way, neither of them were allowed to study for the test, so they both did remarkably well.
