Can YOU Be a U.S. Citizen?

Fox is running a funny story on the US citizenship test. Read it here. Also, you can see the actual test study guide here.

They gave the test to random people in Time Square, and also to a third grader, fifth grader and eighth grader... funny results:

Our third-grader got four of 10. The fifth- and eighth-grader each got six of 10, good enough to become U.S. citizens. They knew what the Constitution did and could name three of the 13 original states.

All three answered that William Howard Taft was president during World War I, leading to believe that they may have collaborated on parts of the test.
