We reached at USCIS office at 1:30 pm. Her interview was scheduled at 2:06. At 2:15 she was called in for interview. Interview was done in 10 minutes. In the begining interviewer (female) reviewed the detail on the form and asked the questions, than asked for signatures and than she started the Civic and History test. She asked 9 questions (even my wife answred all questions right). Following are the questions.

1- Who signs bills into law?
2- Name two senetors?
3- Can the constitution be changed?
4- Who wrote the Star-Spangled Banner?
5- What did the Emancipation Proclamation do?
6- What is the Bill Of Rights?
7- In what year Constitution was written?
8- Name the three branches of the Government?
9- What is the duty of Supreme Court?

Than she told my wife to write a sentence. And that was it. Interviewer told my wife that you have the passed the test. She wrote one form and told my wife that she may go to second floor at cafetaria and come back at 3:30 for oath at 4 O'Clock. Since there were about 100 people and they were calling everyone for sign and review the information on the certifiacte, the oath ceremony was started at 5:30 and it lasted for 15 minutes.

According to my wife, interviewer was little rude (may be interviewer was tired) but since the case was clear, every thing went right. I will thank god and thanks to all the members of this Forum for helping us to end the journey with happyness . Good luck to everyone.
