API is short for Application Programming Interface. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/API)

Since you are not telling us witch API you are talking about, we can't tell you what it contains.

for example, here is a java api. It shows you all the objects and their methods you can use. A good place to start would be the Math class. You'll see some general stuff about the class, and then the specific methods you can call, what parameters the methods take, what they do, and what they return.
