Would you pass?

According to the New York Times, federal immigration authorities have 100 new questions to test immigrants who want to become American citizens. The old test from 1968 has been thrown out in favor of questions that focus on the structure of the American government and represent a more diverse view of history. Apparently some immigrants could pass the old test without studying, but "officials said the new one is intended to force even highly educated applicants to do reviewing."

Here are ten sample questions from the new test. I didn't pass.
