This test reminded me of the ToEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), though-- most native English speakers I know will fail that test spectacularly, and I expect the average US citizen would score about 50% on this.
Scored 20/24 btw. American media makes we learn lots of those things even if we dont care about it.
While politics really isn't my thing, US History is worth knowing
Actually the first time I did the test I had no idea about the authors of the Federalist papers. Still think "legislature" should be accepted, particularly if "judiciary" is allowed.
Who wasted their college years on a political science degree NOW, huh mom? ;-)
Also, probably would have failed (scarcely 60% after some guessing), good thing I'm not American probably
Great quiz though!
James Madison wrote twenty-nine
Hamilton wrote the other fifty-one!"
"Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness"..."Not surprising Men quote 'em. Don't act surprised you guys, cause I wrote 'em" -Thomas Jefferson
"Alexander joins forces with James Madison and John Jay to write a series of essays defending the new United States Constitution entitled The Federalist Papers"
Or just go to a way closer country AUSTRALIA
I am obviously meant to be a stateless person...
Oops, this is an American test, so I should write: learned.
By the way, on a day-to-day basis, how often do U.S. citizens actually use and need this information?
I did manage to get full marks though so, if someone can disregard my ‘daft yank’ remark and send me the appropriate paperwork? What jobs do you have for Brit’s anyway? Is it still mainly wise-cracking butlers and haughty librarians? Or do you still need ridiculously aristocratic maîtres d’, who for some reason still work in restaurants, despite clearly being members of the English nobility?
what am i going to do with my dirt poor, wanting-to-be-american european self! ...
