Explanation

The book lacks of certain elements or I.E: is weak. Key word here is holes. Flawed and wanting are synonyms and as such are the best answers.

Yes. Wanting is a synonym of flawed.

Hope this helps.

Ask if something remain unclear.

Here the clue to the right solution is the word holes.

Which means in the sense of the sentence that it is flawed or not perfect or well organized. Syonym of flawed is wanting.

The book was not intricated or convoluted, but flawed.

Hope this helps.
