About: Every year hundreds of thousands of foreigners try to obtain the dream of US Citizenship. For millions of people living in America is just a dream. For those lucky few who do gain entry they have to pass a US Citizenship test. If they are successful they reap all the benefits of being an American. This test is not as easy as you might think however. The test is issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and most Americans citizens most likely would not pass the test on the first try. The questions are randomly selected from 100 sample questions that prospective citizens can look at ahead of the interview. Some of the questions are very easy some are almost impossible to answer unless you studied the sample question list. Candidates are not given multiple choices in the naturalization interview — which is conducted orally — and are expected to respond with complete answers. Here are a few example questions a person applying for US Citizenship will face:
What do we call the first 10 amendments to the Constitution?
a)The Declaration of Independence
b)The Bill of Rights
c)The Inalienable Rights
d)The Articles of Confederation
2. What are two rights identified in the Declaration of Independence?
a)Liberty and justice
b)Life and right to own a home
c)Life and pursuit of happiness
d)Life and death
