Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Help me!!!!!! about potential

Can potential at any point of electric field produced with many charges be equal to zero?
 
1. Please post on this forum sensibly. People will be help you no matter how many exclamation marks you use in the title.

2. Potential cannot be calculated at a point. Only a 'potential difference' between two points can be calculated. Generally, the potential at infinity is taken to be zero and all other calculations are made respect to that. Hence, potential at a point means the 'potential difference between that point and infinity'. Under this definition, potential is zero only at infinity.
 
but infinity is not in the field. it is abroad
