Read the following passage and choose the best answer to each question.

For many, a big win in the lottery is their dream, so they buy tickets every week hoping for a dream come true. People think when they win they will be able to stop doing that boring job and live a life of luxury. But is their numbers really do come up, that dream often becomes a nightmare.

Brett Peterson was just 19 and working as a waiter in a small restaurant in California. When he found out he was going to receive $2 million payout in the lottery, he immediately gave up work, lent money to all his friends, whether they would be able to pay it back, and spend money lavishly. Within months he had huge credit card debits and no money left to pay them. A year later, he had to take a job as a sales clerk trying to make ends meet.

Lynnette Nichols what's a bookkeeper before she won about $17 million in the lottery. Did it bring her happiness? Well, she and her husband immediately started fighting over money. She couldn't believe that he was wasting money on electronic toys for himself, while he objected to her buy expensive cars for her family. They ended up in court in a trial that cost them both hundreds of thousands of dollars and, of course, they're now divorce.

So why does a sudden win caused so many problems? It seems that a lot when can put enormous stress on those unprepared for it. The majority of people who win are people who did not have a lot of money before. They tend to come from blue-collar backgrounds and having used to working full-time. When they get this unexpected windfall, they don't know how to cope. Very often they stop working and they move house. But these are probably the two worst things they can do. On top of this, big winners are not prepared for the new expectations that people now have on them. Their friends expect them to be generous and they received requests from strangers asking them to donate money. Very often, lottery winners do not have much experience in investing money wisely and end up making disastrous financial decisions, which quickly eat up their winnings.

So, do you still want to win the lottery? If you do win, the best advice is probably to get yourself some good, independent financial advice and more importantly, to be aware that becoming rich overnight can radically change your life - and not necessarily for the better.
