    well, can you? :D


    Funniest thing about this test is the note that the real test doesn't have multiple choices.

    EDIT: I got 90 percent as well. Missed one cause I read it wrong.

    90 percent (18 of 20). The only ones I got wrong are how many in the House and who is chief justice.

    I was a history minor in college and I'm a big nerd, so this would have been pretty easy even without multiple choice.

    Nice work 2much...but you are obviously a spy. No good American can get all 20...

    100 percent... I did guess on two though...

    You answered 100% of questions correctly. Here's your rating:

    0-20%: Maybe you're still thinking too much about the Old Country.

    25-40%: Mmmm. Do you really want to be a citizen? This kind of performance isn't going to impress those nice immigration folks.

    45-60%: Not too bad, but you really need to break out the civics books again -- word is, the INS is looking for an 80 percent score.

    65-80%: Hey, you may make a good citizen yet! Look at your wrong answers and a little revision should do the trick.

    85-100%: Welcome to the United States! (And, truth be told, you know more about this great land than most Americans.)

    95 percent.

    Only one I missed was because I misread the question, "What right is in the first amendment." I read it as not, and answered right to bear arms. MSNBC obviously now believes I am a lunatic, gun-toting, right-winger.

    20/20 - The only questions I might have got wrong if it was not multiple guess was what year the Constitution was written and who was president during WWI

    100 percent. Guessed on one, though.

    I got 100 percent.

    If I hadn't thought and revised my answer to the first question, it would have been 95 percent.
