You are able to take repeated exam attempts. You will be rescheduled by the USCIS office administering your test and handling your interview and file.

If you fail the test, then you must reapply, and your N-400 will be denied. You cannot take the test again. You will also need to pay the filing fees again.

The test is really easy to pass if you studied the 100 questions on USCIS website. You can reapply right after this current denial.

You can take it one time and retake it once. If you fail both times, I believe you need to reapply for naturalization and pay the fees again. The passing score is 6/10, which is 60% and would be equivalent to a D in school so it is really difficult to fail unless you really either don't review the questions or simply do not understand the questions.
