Hi,

What does ‘potluck dinner’ mean?

I went on google under images and I found some pictures for a various food. I need some help.

A potluck dinner is one where all attendees bring a dish that they’ve created. It’s a fun way to try new things and for everyone to participate.

It does?

Thank you very much.

When i read this sentence, i feel something is missing. Can we use ‘for’ or ‘to’ before the potluck dinner?

Surely, they missed it. It appears that “to” is correct in the case, i.e. “to bring to the potluck dinner”

‘To’ is okay, but ‘for’ would make more sense.
“What are you going to bring to the potluck dinner” could imply that something other than food is being brought (but lots of English speakers would use it anyway).
“What are you going to bring for the potluck dinner” clearly indicates that the person asking the question wants to know what they will bring as part of the dinner.

Yes, there is indeed an error in the test sentence. As has already been mentioned, adding either ‘to’ or ‘for’ would be possible ways to repair the sentence.

By the way, the capitalization of the word ‘I’ was missing in your post, Adamant. :wink:
