U. S. Government/Quiz

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This quiz requires background knowledge, and not a lot of dependance on some of the pages of this project. This is mainly for 7th grade civics (advanced history) to take and practice before an actual Civics SOL. It is suggested to shuffle the questions but is not mandatory for you to do so. If you cheat, that is on you, and not any problem on us. This is also more Virginia related than any other state. Good luck!
