This sentence makes sense in portuguese and is correct, however the translation that they want to english is incorrect and awkward. "What do you have inside there" would sound better and be more accurate to what is written.

"what is it you have inside" is not correct, but it is an awkward sentence

Yep, it's weird. Any native speaker can commit its correct and natural ?

very weird sentence, this English sentence makes sense now, but surely the sentence "what is there inside" could be covered by "o que é dentro" or "o que é dentro aí"?

Where's Paulenrique when you need him? ;)

there is = them/há. Therefore, "é" does not work here.

You should always say "aí dentro", not "dentro aí".

I understand the idea behind the owl's translation. But i don't understand why " what do you have in there" is wrong.

"What is inside" is the most natural English translation that would be used by a native. The given translation does not sound natural to me

Jist "What's inside" is accepted.

Why is "What's inside of there" incorrect?

"What have you got in there?" sounds like a more natural translation, it seems to me.
