IMO, question 20 was confusingly worded and could be answered correctly more than one way.

I thought so too, but decided on the correct interpretation from their use of the word "we". I mean, how many of us are members of the electoral college?

Looking again, it appears the questions are randomized, so my question 20 may not be anyone else's. The question I saw was something like "How often do we elect Senators?" Well, Senators are elected for six year terms (the answer I gave and the one they were looking for), but we elect Senators every two years, as in, there's a senatorial election held every other year.

I didn't realize becoming a citizen allowed you to 'petition' to bring close relatives into the country.

one wrong here too. The question was what is the highest local authority of your local government. I was going to pick mayor, which was the correct answer, but they threw in state governor and I figured even he trumped the local mayor

How is the introduction to the Constitution called?
How is your name?

Mi nombre es VinVega, gracias.

19 out of 20. My highest local official, I picked Governor instead of Mayor since I wasn't sure how "local" they were talking.

A Gracious Slave master sponsored my family so I don't need to take the test.

The onlyy real question one needs to know the answer to is "how can I make the white man rich with my blood, sweat, and tears if he lets me live here"

I call the highest local official "Dude", so I got that one wrong.

Whew, I guess I can not only stay, but continue to be self-righteous about civic duties and such. Yay!

I didn't get the 'highest official' question at all and I was asked 'for how long do we elect members of the house of representatives.'

19/20. Oops.

18. When was the Declaration of Independence adopted?
a) July 4, 1986
b) July 4, 1886
c) July 4, 1776
d) August 6,1974
I think they mean "August 9, 1974." And they have a point -- that should be a day honored as much as July 4, 1776.

Well, the governor would be the head of you "state" government, not your "local". There are 3 levels of government, right? Federal, State, Local.

That question was still worded bad and the choice of city commisioner was bad to include. Not every town/city calls their top official "mayor".

It wasn't signed until the 6th. It was adopted and publically read for the first time on the 4th.
