My textbook states that a potential divider can alter the output voltage to 0V but how is that possible? Shouldnt it alter it to a minimum? Im really confused as to how it can do this so any help is really appreciated!

Im not sure what you mean by alter the output to 0V. Do you mean it alter a circuits output overall to 0V? Or the Voltage dropped across the divider?
Im pretty sure neither are true.
The resistance would be really, really small to do that... like really small.
a minimum sounds more reasonable
