    I missed one, didn't know what form you need to become a citizen, figured "petition" sound more official, I was wrong.

    70%



    Missed these:

    3. In what year was the Constitution written?
    14. Who selects the Supreme Court justices? (which they stated was partially correct)
    15. How many representatives are there in Congress?
    16. Who said, "Give me liberty or give me death"?
    18. Who has the power to declare war?

    ouch!

    If I remeber correctly the President can delcare war for something like 3 days. Then congress has to approve it.

    I got a 70%.

    14. Who selects the Supreme Court justices? The Senate is not correct.
    They are appointed by the president. (NOTE: This is the response given on the official United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Web site. The president selects the justices; however, they must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. If they are rejected by the Senate, then the president must choose a new nominee, who, again, is subject to Senate approval.)
    Saying the senate is not the correct answer is missleading.

    100% Some of these I wouldn't have known, but about two weeks ago a local radio station was asking these questions to people on air (I guess from the same test)

    95% - Got this one wrong:

    19. What INS form is used to apply to become a naturalized citizen?

    Form N-200 "Petition for Naturalization" is not correct.
    N-400 "Application for Naturalization"

    Scary! I got 60% and I am not American

    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.
    If you don’t like the road you’re walking on, start paving a new one.

    100% - the only one i really didn't know was what form it is to apply for naturalization, but i guessed and got it right anyway

    14. Who selects the Supreme Court justices? (which they stated was partially correct)
    that supreme court justice question was not worded right, everyone said so!
    Why isn't that worded right? It looked fine to me...

    The president does select the justices. The senate just has to approve them.

    No, incorrect. The President is the Commander-in-Chief of the military. He can send them anywhere he wants without Congressional approval (which is why they're still in Iraq right now and other locations. If the President wished them back, his order having them back would be the final say). However, for it to be an actual "war", Congress has to actually declare it. The Iraq War is not an actual war; it has not been formally declared war by Congress. The Media is to blame for that misnome. Now World War II, for example, was a bonafide declaration of war by Congress. This power is granted to Congress by the Constitution; Article I, Section 8.

    No, it's not misleading. The Senate has no authority to pick the nominees. Only the President can do that. They do, however, have a say, and their say is the final step for the nominee to be charged with his respective duties. This is yet another example of the checks and balances system.

    EDIT: Forgot to post my score; 95%, only missed the one about the ratification of the Constitution. Read too quickly on that one .
