ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: U.S. Constitution

How many amendments to the U.S. Constitution were proposed in the Bill of Rights passed by Congress in 1789?

12. The first two proposed - dealing with the number and apportionment of the House of Representatives, and Congressional pay raises - failed to be ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures. The remaining 10 were ratified and became the Bill of Rights.
