Naturalization Test

Tomorrow my husband Mowgli (not his real name) will take a written and oral test of English and a 10-question U.S. civics exam as part of his naturalization process. Herewith I present to you a sample test, culled from the 100 questions contained in the study booklet he was given. A passing grade is six correct answers, and for fun, I've posted the answers to the questions below the photo.

2. What are two rights in the Declaration of Independence?

3. In what month do we vote for President?

4. What ocean is on the East Coast of the United States?

5. Name one war fought by the United States in the 1800s.

6. Who was the first President?

7. Why does the flag have 50 stars?

8. What did Susan B. Anthony do?

9. Who wrote the Declaration of Independence?

10. How many amendments does the Constitution have?

1. The Constitution; 2. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; 3. November; 4.The Atlantic ; 5. War of 1812, Mexican-American War, Civil War, Spanish-American War; 6. George Washington; 7. each star represents a state; 8. fought for women's and civil rights; 9. Thomas Jefferson; 10. 27.

  1. My good friend, Maria (her American name) is from Malaysia and married an American man over 20 years ago. They have lived all over the globe, but over the past 4 years they have lived in Pennsylvania full time. Maria had a green card and though she was allowed to work in the US there seemed to be lots of commplications getting a "lunchlady" job at a local elementaray school. She decided it was time to become an American citizen. She asked me to help her study...I was embarrassed at how many answers I was unsure of! The good news is that Maria, just this week, passed her citizen's exam!
