Many individuals lucky enough to be born in the United States and have natural citizenship don’t realize that others who immigrate here must pass a U.S. Citizenship Test that determines just how well these individuals know the country they want to adopt as their own. An online quiz posting 15 of these questions taken directly from the U.S. Citizenship Test is challenging people who are already United States citizens by birth to test their knowledge of America and whether or not they would be able to advance in their quest for U.S. citizenship.
Some of the citizenship test questions focus on geography, such as naming at least one state that lies along the border of Mexico, and which ocean fronts the eastern seaboard of the United States. If you guessed Texas and The Atlantic, give yourself a pat on the back and keep on going.
Other questions relate to politics and the operation of the United States Government. Do you know the political party affiliation of current President Barack Obama? Can you identify a member of the current Supreme Court? Do you know the year that the U.S. Constitution was written? Or how about naming just three of the original 13 states that formed the United States of America? In order to pass this citizenship quiz, you have better know who is commander in chief of the U.S. military forces, as well as when all men in the U.S. are required to register for Selective Service.
The Citizenship Test doesn’t require you to know the answers right off the top of your head, but gives you several multiple choice answers to choose from that can help to jog your memory. So the next time you take your U.S. Citizenship for granted, remember that there are many others studying and working hard to really get to know their newly adopted nation.
