On November 13, USCIS issued a Policy Alert and updated its Policy Manual to reflect changes to the Naturalization Test. The changes will apply to N-400 Applications filed on or after December 1, 2020.

Currently, applicants have to study 100 civics questions. At their interview, they must get at least 6 out of 10 questions correct. Under the new policy, applicants will have to study 128 questions. At their interview, they will be asked 20 questions and must get at least 12 correct. The percent of correct questions required (60%) does not change.

You can find the bank of 128 civics questions and answers here:

USCIS will maintain the current guidelines for applicants who are 65 years of age or older and have been lawful permanent residents (green card holders) for at least 20 years. These applicants will be asked 10 questions and must answer at least 6 questions correctly in order to pass the test.
