Our egg carton contains or has twelve eggs in it, which is perfect since we only need two eggs for each of the six recipes we have. The recipe book contains or includes six kinds of chocolate chip cookies, which is what I am going to make today. I can barely contain or keep inside my excitement over trying out each of the recipes. My mom just now shook her head and said, “By the end of this cooking your stomach will contain or hold within it more cookies than can fit in an entire cookie jar!”
Quiz: Why might you contain something?
- You want to keep it in one place.
- You want to show others how it works.
- You want to make sure everyone can have it.
