Civics Quiz score

I scored a respectable 90.91 % on the civics quiz , with no cheating, mind you.

Answers to questions I missed:

Question #12 Which of the following statements is true about abortion?
- B. the Supreme Court struck down most legal restrictions on it in Roe v.Wade
Question #22 What part of the government has the power to declare war?
- A. Congress
Question #27 Free markets typically secure more economic prosperity than government’s centralized planning because:
- A. the price system utilizes more local knowledge of means and ends

Not to brag, but I seemed to have scored higher than many elected officials:

Of the 2,508 People surveyed, 164 say they have held an elected government office at least once in their life. Their average score on the civic literacy test is 44%, compared to 49% for those who have not held an elected office

The people's cube has another civics quiz, with my favorite Q & A being:

Q. Who was the English philosopher whose writings influenced the Declaration of Independence?

A. Guy Fawkes
