I'd Probably Fail

According to NY1:
The federal government is releasing more than 100 new questions they are considering adding to the citizenship exam to make it more difficult.

The questions will be tested in ten cities early next year, before a redesigned test is launched in 2008.

Officials want to encourage a better understanding of American history and government institutions.

For example, the old test used to ask what the three branches of government were. Now it will also ask why there are three branches.

Another question asks applicants to explain Martin Luther King's dream for America.
As Gothamist so aptly put it, feel free to place your sarcastic answers in the comments below.
