To become a naturalized citizen, a lawful permanent resident must have continuously resided in the United States for at least 5 years or have been residing in the United States for 3 years while married to a U.S. citizen. In addition to other things like a criminal background check and other qualifications, the applicant must pass an oral exam given by a USCIS officer. The exam, known as the Citizenship Exam, covers fundamental principles of government and history of the United States. The applicant must get 6 out of 10 questions correct. Do you think you could provide the right answers? Remember it is an oral exam not multiple choice:

1. The idea of self government is in the first three words of the Constitution. What are these words?

2. How many amendments does the Constitution have?

3. The House of Representatives has how many voting members?

4. What are two Cabinet-level positions?

5. Under our Constitution, some powers belong to the federal government. What is one power of the federal government?

6. There are four amendments to the Constitution about who can vote. Describe one of them.

7. There were 13 original states. Name three:

8. The Federalist Papers supported the passage of the U.S. Constitution. Name one of the writers.

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

10. Name one state that borders Canada.
