From the BBC, test your knowledge of the U.S presidency with this 10 question quiz. There are a couple of interesting questions, particularly number 1. Most are pretty easy if you know the basics of American history or politics. I scored 9/10 (question 3 got me).

Be warned that question four is poorly worded. The intended question is 'if the president and the VP cannot serve who is next in line for the presidency?' The way it is written however, suggests that if only the VP is removed that his replacement is constitutionally designated, which is incorrect. In such a situation the President appoints a new VP to be ratified by Congress.
