A Little Harder Civics Test

Knowing how you and I like tests, I present this somewhat more challenging test.

I "answered 32 out of 33 correctly — 96.97 %

Average score for this quiz during November: 77.8%
Average score: 77.8%"

Now, this is where it gets interesting: the test was given to mere mortals like you and me, and to those who have run for and won public office. The results were fascinating. On a question be question basis, politicians know less than the rest of us.

Ok, everyone, your turn.

The one I missed?
Number 29

29) A flood-control levee (or National Defense) is considered a public good because:
A. citizens value it as much as bread and medicine
B. a resident can benefit from it without directly paying for it
C. government construction contracts increase employment
D. insurance companies cannot afford to replace all houses after a flood
E. government pays for its construction, not citizens

The correct answer is B, I answered A.
