How do we use "Dare"? For instance, if I am challenging someone who does not brave enough to hold a snake. Which one is correct below? I dare you not to hold this big snake. or I dare you to hold this big snake. Thank you in advance.

Hi Kelvin! The second sentence is correct: "I dare you to hold this snake." When you dare someone to do something, you're saying that they should do it, but that you don't believe they're brave enough. For example, I'm afraid of heights (truly!), and a friend might say, "Matt, I dare you to climb that tree over there." I hope that helps (and congratulations on your excellent English)! Cheers, Matt

"I dare you to hold this big snake" is correct. Also, "if I am challenging somebody who is not brave enough to hold a snake". Cheers.
