The process of becoming a U.S. citizen is often long and complicated, and one of the final steps after completing an application for naturalization, getting fingerprinted, and being interviewed, is an oral U.S. civics test that consists of 10 questions.

To pass, the applicant must get six correct. To help people study, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services releases a list of all 100 possible questions that the interviewer can draw from. While the list is multiple choice, the test itself is open-ended, but applicants are encouraged to use the answers given.

Take our test below using some of those questions to see how you would do, and share your results with us in comments or on Facebook or Twitter.
