This almost sounds like a joke, but in a first person account by Dafna Linzer on ProPublica about her experience writing the citizenship exam, it appears you are required to give the wrong answers to pass the test. Linzer is a Canadian and did manage to pass. Here are some excerpts from her account:

"Take Question 36. It asks applicants to name two members of the president's Cabinet. Among the correct answers is "Vice President." The vice president is a cabinet-level officer but he's not a Cabinet member. Cabinet members are unelected heads of executive departments [4], such as the Defense Department, or the State Department."
