Hey, 1 Out of 3 Is Batting .333 In Baseball
The Times today has a story about a list of new questions in the civics test for qualification for citizenship.
Here are the three sample questions the report gave:
1. What was one important thing that Abraham Lincoln did?
2. What does the president's cabinet do?
3. What stops one branch of government from becoming too powerful?
I got Number 1 right, but answered "Nothing" to both Number 2 and Number 3, which apparently are incorrect answers, at least according to the credulous Citizenship and Immigration Services.
