Good Luck.
A song from the [famous / famously] English pop group the Beatles told us that money can't buy us [lovely / love] . Many people [addition / also] believe that money cannot buy happiness. In [fact / facts] , there is an expression that says 'money is the root of all evil'. However, a new study from Cambridge University [suggests / suggesting] that money can buy you happiness. Researchers conducted a study [on / in] the spending habits of customers in a bank. They compared [that / what] the bank customers bought with their personality. The research team [comparison / compared] the personalities of 625 people with a list of how they spent [their / them] money. The conclusion of the study was that what people buy can [lead / leads] to happiness, but only if they buy the right things.

One [of / for] the researchers believes the study may change the [weigh / way] people think about money and happiness. He said it [showing / showed] , "that spending can increase our happiness when it is spent [on / in] goods and services that [fitting / fit] our personalities". He said Internet companies could use information about people's happiness to recommend [products / produce] and services that make people happier. Another researcher said spending money could be [more / much] important in our lives than we thought. She said: "Spending money on products that help us [express / expression] who we are as individuals could turn [in / out] to be as important to our well-being as finding the right job, the right neighbourhood or [even / ever] the right friends and partners."
