Passage

PRINCIPLE: A promise to give something of value on the determination or ascertainment of an uncertain event is called a wager. Agreements by way of wager are void; and no suit shall be brought for recovering anything alleged to be won on any wager, or entrusted to any person to abide the result of any game or other uncertain event on which a wager is made.

FACTS: Shia and Tia are both cricket lovers and competitive cricket players. Once, Tia challenges Shia that if she is able to hit five sixes in an over, she shall be given twenty dollars by Tia. Shia accepts the challenge and she is successfully able to hit five sixes in an over. However, Tia characterizes this as a wager and refuses to give the prize. Shia files a suit in response to the same. Choose the right answer.
