    It means nothing to me.

    There has to be a context in which you encountered it.

    Re: A question about "set for "

    It was one of the answer choices to one question. So there was no context.
    I guess there might be some mistake.
    Thank you for your help, teacher.

    Hi!

    OK, then we have to use our imagination. Look at the following:

    We set up a new game.

    That means that you prepare for a new game. Rearrange the battlefield or your monopoly field for a new game. All hotels to the bank again....

    The question might give some context. Really, without any context, there is no point in trying to answer this.
