About the civics test

The civics test is a spoken test. During your interview, the USCIS Officer will ask you 6 to 10 of the 100 civics questions. You must give a correct spoken answer to 6 out of 10 questions to pass this part of the test.

Civics test answers

The answers that USCIS wants to hear are below each question after a ▪ on the pdfs at the bottom of this page. Some questions have more than one correct answer. There may be other correct answers to the 100 civics questions, but you should choose one of the answers shown here to remember. Then you can be sure that you will answer correctly. You only need to learn one answer, except for questions 36, 51, 55, and 100, which ask for 2 answers, and question 64, which asks for 3 answers. You do not have to say the words in ( ) unless you want to.

Answers that may change

You may be asked for the name of some of elected officials – for example, “Who is Speaker of the House?” The names may have changed by the time you take your test. When you start to study, and again right before your test, check the USCIS test updates page. As you study for the civics test, make sure that you know the current answers to the following questions: 20, 23, 28, 29, 39, 40, 43, 46 and 47. Answer these questions with the name of the person who is in office when you have your interview.
