Dumbest Citizenship Test Question
Posted By Gerard Magliocca On November 10, 2012 @ 12:07 am In Uncategorized | 12 Comments
I was recently looking at the questions that are asked on the citizenship test. There’s a mix of good, bad, and confusing in there, but the oddest question is clearly this: “What is one thing Benjamin Franklin is famous for?” I’m not sure why this is so crucial, but things get worse when you look at the (only) acceptable answers:
1. U.S. Diplomat
2. Oldest Member of the Constitutional Convention
3. First Postmaster General of the United States
4. Writer of “Poor Richard’s Almanac”
5. Started the first free libraries
Something is missing here. Do you see what it is?
