A recent Washington Times Web feature presents a sample of questions as being from a US Citizenship test, including "How many justices are on the Supreme Court?"
The answer choices are 7, 8, 9, or 12, and 9 is marked as the correct answer.
If a person were taking the test today, should they answer a question like this with 9 (the number of available positions) or 8 (the number of justices actually on the Supreme Court)?
Are other questions on citizenship tests generally updated to reflect current events?
While this particular question came from a US test, answers about other countries' tests are welcome too.
