Trivia Thursday – Constitutional Qs


This is the first in a new series I’m doing every Thursday.  I’ll give you 3 to 7 questions on the law,literature, writing and/or science, and you answer them in the comments below.

I’m holding you to the honor’s system.  No cheating, yes, that includes Googling and reading prior comments before you answer yourself. 🙂 For every answer correct, you get me to answer something on your blog, like critiquing a piece, and anyone who gets all questions of the week correct gets me re-posting a recent post of theirs.

The point of this is to engage and have fun, and hopefully learn something.  I’ll post the answers on Fridays around noon.

1. I said I’d give 3 to 7 questions for a specific reason.  In the US Constitution, what are there 3 of and what are there 7 of?

2. What is the 3rd amendment about?

3. What document preceded the US Constitution?

4. In what landmark case did the Supreme Court assert its authority to review Acts of Congress, thus securing the Court’s right to judicial review?

5. People joke that they are pleading the fifth when they’re telling friends they won’t answer a question.  This is actually a misstatement of the law.  What does pleading the fifth really mean?

There ya go, ready, set, answer! 🙂
