.
Do here means be sufficient/adequate (to the task).

There are perhaps many persons at this meal, and the speaker wonders whether one more pot of stew is enough to serve everyone who hasn't yet eaten.

It can; 'do' is the correct answer.

pot - cooking pot/pan/saucepan
stew - food cooked slowly in liquid - a sort of soup.
