Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the primary purpose of the 5th Article of the United States Constitution?

    • A.

      Ratification

    • B.

      Ammendments

    • C.

      Debts, Supremacy and Oaths

    Correct Answer
    B. Ammendments
    Explanation
    The primary purpose of the 5th Article of the United States Constitution is to outline the process for amending the Constitution. This article provides the framework for making changes to the Constitution in order to adapt to the evolving needs and values of the nation. It establishes the procedures for proposing and ratifying amendments, ensuring that any modifications to the Constitution are done in a deliberate and democratic manner.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    How many states were needed to ratify the Constitution?

    • A.

      9

    • B.

      50

    • C.

      13

    Correct Answer
    A. 9
    Explanation
    The Constitution needed to be ratified by 9 states in order to become law. Ratification is the formal approval process where states vote to accept and adopt the Constitution. Once 9 states had ratified it, the Constitution became binding on those states. This requirement was outlined in Article VII of the Constitution, which stated that the Constitution would become effective once it had been ratified by conventions in at least 9 of the 13 states.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    How many members of both houses need to approve an ammendment to the Constitution?

    • A.

      4/5

    • B.

      1/3

    • C.

      2/3

    Correct Answer
    C. 2/3
    Explanation
    In order to approve an amendment to the Constitution, a majority of both houses of Congress must agree. The correct answer is 2/3, which means that two-thirds of the members in both the House of Representatives and the Senate need to vote in favor of the amendment. This requirement ensures that any proposed amendment has strong support from both houses and prevents amendments from being easily passed without significant agreement.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Debts accrued prior to the signing of the Constitution were no longer going to be paid back.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because debts accrued prior to the signing of the Constitution were indeed going to be paid back. The Constitution did not nullify or cancel any existing debts. Instead, it established the federal government's responsibility to honor and repay those debts. This was an important provision to ensure the financial stability and credibility of the new nation.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The laws of the Constitution

    • A.

      Can be overridden by a state when appropriate.

    • B.

      Are the ultimate law that must be followed.

    • C.

      Are suggested guidlines for making laws in a city.

    Correct Answer
    B. Are the ultimate law that must be followed.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are the ultimate law that must be followed." This means that the laws of the Constitution are the highest authority and take precedence over any other laws or regulations. It implies that no other law or action can contradict or supersede the Constitution. It establishes the Constitution as the fundamental framework for governance and ensures that all individuals, including states, are bound by its provisions.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The president used to have to take a religious test before being inaugurated into office.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false. In the United States, there is no religious test required for the president to be inaugurated into office. The Constitution explicitly prohibits any religious test for holding public office, including the presidency. This ensures that individuals of any religious background or those who do not practice any religion can hold the highest office in the country.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What does a group of states do to propose an ammendment to the Constitution?

    • A.

      Call a convention

    • B.

      Write a proposal and send it to the Congress

    • C.

      Put it on Facebook

    Correct Answer
    A. Call a convention
    Explanation
    A group of states can propose an amendment to the Constitution by calling a convention. This means that they gather together to discuss and draft a proposal for the amendment. Once the proposal is finalized, it is then presented to the Congress for consideration. This process allows the states to have a direct role in proposing changes to the Constitution, providing a mechanism for their input and involvement in the amendment process.
