What does the book contain? As Hamlet said, " Words, words words"!!

I keep getting this one wrong by answering, "What is inside the book?" I don't understand the distinction.

is this a question about the content or not? my answer "what is the content of the book" is not accepted

How would you ask: "What [is it that] contains/holds the book?"

In other words, how would you ask what the book is in?

If it's: "What is the book about?" you're asking about, it's: "Hva handler boka om?"

Forget what I said. I read wrong. It's: "Hva ligger boka i?"

Is this question asking for the ideas in the book? or the recipe that I cut out of the newspaper and stuck in between the pages of the book? (Where did I put that?)
