Question: 1 / 20

How many total amendments are there in the Bill of Rights?



The Bill of Rights consists of the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution. Each of these amendments provides essential protections and rights to individuals from the federal government. Options A, C, and D are incorrect because they do not accurately state the number of amendments in the Bill of Rights. Option A is too low, option C is too high, and option D is significantly higher than the actual number of amendments. When answering questions about the Bill of Rights, it is important to remember that there are 10 amendments in total. The other options listed either overestimate or underestimate this number. Therefore, the correct answer is B 10.
