I came to US on fiancé visa and married my husband within 90 days. i divorced him when I was conditional resident and after applied for 10 year green card. Received my permanent GC without any interviews. I applied for citizenship on 5 year rule and have interview shortly. Will officer at the interview ask my marriage questions? Should I refresh my memory on dates etc. thanks
Yes, the officer is bound to ask your "marriage questions", given that it is through marriage that you obtained your LPR status.
Better "refresh" your memory on dates; etc., as well as bring any pertinent paperwork of the era with, just in case.

Without a doubt.
In fact, the USCIS interviewing officer is obligated to review and explore all bona fide requirements of that qualifying marriage, and, if any suspect issues will be noted, your naturalization not only will be denied, but you could face removal proceedings if your LPR status becomes compromised and cancelled.
