Video: We took a US citizenship test and it wasn't easy

Every year, an average of 680,000 people become naturalized U.S. citizens. And in Minnesota specifically, just over half of the immigrants are U.S. citizens, the American Immigration Council says.

As part of the naturalization process, they get asked up to 10 questions from a 100-questions pool – and must answer at least six of those 10 correctly. So we decided to quiz our co-workers to see if they'd be able to pass. (Keep in mind, people who actually take the test can study beforehand here.)

We paired up six groups, and they weren't given time to study. Even so, most of our co-workers thought they'd get most questions correct.

How would you do?
