Hi everybody,

I have a question concerning the civil test...(even though I have couple months before to send in my application). When the IO asks the questions, do we need to answer with a full sentence? For example, if the IO asks: "What is the supreme law of the land?", do we have to say: "The supreme law of the land is the Constitution" or is it just fine just to say: "the Constitution"?

Thanks all for the input, visajourney is such a helpful tool with this stressful process. But hey we are almost done...last step!!!

The answer to this is covered here:

It seems no one knows, but most suspect an answer that is not exact, but is correct, even if it isn't exactly word-for-word as per the USCIS answer should be fine. I'll go with short and sweet, so in this example, I'll answer "the Constitution".

I had that exact question, and I answered "the Constitution". All the IO did was write my exact answer down on her sheet, and proceeded to the next question (which I could see on her sheet).

Good luck with your interview and don't be nervous. I looked my IO in the eye when I answered my questions.

Short answers are sufficient - you don't need to phrase your answers in the form of a complete sentence. You could if you wanted to, but it sounds weird. The woman who interviewed me accepted my short and to-the-point answers (e.g. "The Constitution", "Independence from Britain", "Slavery" etc.)
