    Correct Answer
    C. Someone can fill out the check and write it for as much as they wish
    Explanation
    If you sign a blank cheque, it means that you have given someone else the authority to fill out the details of the cheque, including the amount, and write it for any desired amount. This is risky because the person who possesses the cheque can potentially misuse it by filling out a large amount, leading to financial loss for you. It is important to never sign a blank cheque and always fill out the necessary details before signing it to ensure control over your finances.
