America, America

 was just surfing the NBC web page and came across an article about the USA citizenship, so I decided to take the test and not knowing anything about American History I thought I did pretty well getting 40% but obviously not.  Try the test yourself (that is if you are not American, although it may be interesting to see how many Americans fail this test).  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/37279732/ns/us_news-immigration_a_nation_divided/

Could you pass latest citizenship test?
You answered 40% of questions correctly. Here's your rating: 

0-20%:
 Maybe you're still thinking too much about the Old Country.

25-40%:
 Mmmm. Do you really want to be a citizen? This kind of performance isn't going to impress those nice immigration folks.

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.

65-80%:
 Hey, you may make a good citizen yet! Look at your wrong answers and a little revision should do the trick.

85-100%:
 Welcome to the United States! (And, truth be told, you know more about this great land than most Americans.)

Scroll down to see answers for each question.
 Also, please let us know what you think about the quiz. The feedback is appreciated.
