Does this novel …………… any of the writer’s beliefs?

a consist           b exist           c contain           d include           

I think that 'contain' and 'include', in this sentence, both give the same meaning and I can't choose one over the other.

Hi, Rasha Assem,

I agree with you that both "contain" and "include" are possible.

I would probably have chosen an altogether different word, because beliefs are perhaps too abstract to be said to be contained or included anywhere. This might be a better choice:

e. Does this novel express any of the writer's beliefs?
