I remember that was an important part of the story, when my gran'ma was telling it to us.
Baba Yaga was satisfied that Vasilisa did only ask about strange things she had seen outside the house (in "public" places, i.e. the woods), not things (even stranger) that she had seen inside, thus respecting the confidence Baba Yaga had bestowed upon her in accepting her into the privacy of that chicken-legged house.
