I don't have any criminal record, came to US on a green card, paid my taxes etc.
I know it's frustrating, but there's really no way to tell. Sometimes an officer is simply uncertain how to decide (maybe they are new and want to check with a supervisor), maybe there were problems with the English exam, or maybe there is another file with a similar name./date of birth and they simply want to make sure they have the right person. Sometimes it's a technical issue - for example, if there computers were down or a background check couldn't be performed before your interview, they cannot make an official decision. If you haven't heard anything within 60 days, schedule an InfoPass appointment to see if there's anything else you can do.
