    What does it mean by that?

    Hello!

    Could you explain what the underlined part means?

    A: Do you know what became of the minutes of last week's meeting?

    Thank you!

    Thank you!

    = Do you know where the minutes of last week's meeting are/where they were put/who has them?

    It sometimes contains a feeling that the minutes are missing or have been misplaced.

    The minutes of a meeting is a record of what happened during that meeting. The speaker is asking someone what happened to that record. (Minutes are usually written in a book used for that purpose.)
