Few days back my mother had her citizenship interview. She passed the American History easily. She got the first 6 questions right. We were not aware that in this interview process they go over the N-400 form. We never reviewed it. She got nervous and confused when the USCIS officer asked her the N-400 questions. Had she calmly listened to them, she would have surely passed it. Now my questions are as follows: Can she refuse if she is assigned to the same officer next time? Do they only ask the questions on n-400 application during the interview to test the speaking and understanding part? Or they can ask unrelated questions as well? Last time they asked her to define Communism. Can someone accompany her for the interview? If yes how can they be of some help. I know the accompanying person can't answer for them but then what can be the purpose if they are allowed. Thanks.
