      I missed one. But it is kind of debatable because...


      The Vice President functions as the tie-breaking vote for the Senate, which is a function of the Legislative Branch, therefore, he technically belongs to both branches. But I understand what they are asking, and I get why I missed it

          If it makes y'all feel better, I missed one, too.

          I don't know why - I knew full well Adams was the first constitutional VP but I went with Hamilton like an idiot.

            Missed two but I am a "Constitution Master! Wow! You are a true Sentinel of Justice!" I got three and seven wrong...

              I missed the one about the max length a president can serve. And missed who is president if the vice-president cant be.

                I missed precisely the same ones as Sparko. I wonder if I would do as well with a quiz on the Australian constitution... we don't really talk about it as much as youse guys.

                  Missed Washington's VP — which isn't strictly about the constitution — and the extra 2 years loophole for president.

                  So I'm claiming all but one.

                    15/15, got them all correct. What do I win?

                      The loophole question about the maximum amount of time a president can serve is a dirty, rotten trick.

                          Got 'em all. But then when I was in High School I even got the trick questions that were used in the old voting/literacy tests that were used to exclude folks they didn't like.

                          The only one I remember was "What is the term of a Supreme Court Justice?"

                          The correct answer: Life but conditional -- they are subject to impeachment

                          I'm always still in trouble again

                              I missed 4.

                              #4. <-- by phrasing I thought it was a trick question.....it wasn't
                              #6. <-- I've not really paid much attention who your past vice presidents were.
                              #7. <-- I have no idea why I selected the option I did.
                              #14. <-- I thought it was the third amendment because for some bizarre reason I thought the first was about free speech.
