Yeah, that one too! I was outside in the waiting room checking out another young Filipina’s legs :-)
They asked her who was the head of the local government. They were looking for the mayor of San Diego. I think she gave way too much information, including the mayor's name (Dick Murphy), that he was recently named the worse mayor in the USA, that he was resigning in a few weeks, that there was a special election for a new mayor in July, etc, etc, etc... The immigration officer had to shut her off and remarked that she indeed did know her government (LOL).
The government and history questions all came from the list of 100, except the trick question. She got 10 oral questions and they require 6 correct answers to pass and she got them all right. She also had to write out a sentence in English that they gave her and read a sentence that was printed out. Very basic and simple stuff!
I coached her to plead the Fifth Amendment in case they asked her which party she was going to register or vote for. You know how those government employees are :-)
