The following is question #55 from the civics portion of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) naturalization test. There are 100 possible civics questions on the test. This is an oral test in which the applicants answer ten questions. There are those that criticize natural born citizens ability to pass this test but that isn’t the point of this post. #55 teaches as mush as it tests and this is why it is worth a post.
