Please explain the use and meaning of "what" here?

Is "what your topic is" a noun clause function as a verb complement to the word "outline"?

"hook" here is a slang.

Outline what your topic is about.
Point to the main arguments/points of your topic known as a thesis. (thesis means statement) IMO

"What" is a pronoun (in this sentence).
It means "the thing which".

Outline the thing which is your topic.
It is often used in questions the same sort of way: "What is your topic? Outline it."

The clause "what your topic is" does act as a noun, and is the object of the verb 'outline'.
Outline it.
Outline your topic.
Outline what your topic is.
