Samples from the US Citizenship Examination
Preparing for the US citizenship exam is much longer than the actual 15 min. exam. Many are surprised just how short it is but one must know the 100 questions and their answers in order to pass because they are selected randomly.
Many of the questions I am sure most Americans would not know. Here are few of them:
- How many US senators are there? (100)
- Why do some states have more Representatives than others? (Because of a state's population)
- What are two cabinet level positions in government? (Secretary of Defense & Energy)
- What is one power of the federal government? ( to declare war, print money)
- What is one power of a state? ( issue driver's license, provide education and police)
- What is one right of a US citizen? ( vote in federal election)
- Who wrote the Declaration of Independence? (Jefferson)
- Name three of the original states. (NY, NJ, Penn)
- When was the Constitution written? (1787)
- Name one writer of the Federalist papers. (Hamilton)
- Name one thing Benjamin Franklin is famous for? (US diplomat)
- What territory did the US buy from France in 1803? (Louisiana)
- What did the Emancipation Proclamation do? (free the slaves)
- Who was president during WW1? (Wilson)
- What is the national anthem? (Star Spangled Banner)

Some are not so easy.
