Hi all, hoping to hear from people who have completed the N400 interview. My husband and I are studying for my test next week and we're having a debate as to whether I need to be answering EXACTLY as written on the flash cards - I mean, this is a government department after all!
For example, with the question:
There are four amendments to the Constitution about who can vote. Describe one of them.
? Citizens eighteen (18) and older (can vote).
? You don t have to pay (a poll tax) to vote.
? Any citizen can vote. (Women and men can vote.)
? A male citizen of any race (can vote).
If I answer "that any citizen, male or female, or any race can vote" would this be marked as "wrong"? Because I am not repeating their approved answers exactly?
What was one important thing that Abraham Lincoln did?
? freed the slaves (Emancipation Proclamation)
? saved (or preserved) the Union
? led the United States during the Civil War
I answered "issued the Emancipation Proclamation to change the legal status of some slaves" which again is correct but not exactly as they have written on the list of questions.
Apologies if this is a stupid question, but this has been such a journey I would hate to mess up at the last step on a mere technicality!
