The naturalization test consists of 100 questions on U.S. civics and history, from which the test administrator chooses up to 10 questions and for which a passing score is 60 percent, states USCIS. For test-takers who are 65 and older and who have lived in the United States for at least 20 years, the number of potential test questions is reduced to 20, USCIS notes. As of 2015, 57 of the test questions covered American government, 31 concerned American historical events from colonial times to the terrorist attacks of 2001, and 12 address integrated civics issues such as general geography.

While many questions concern historical figures or events and have answers that do not change over time, others ask for current political information and require different answers depending on when the user takes the test or where in the country the user lives, states USCIS.
