Hey there are too many questions for one space here. You need to submit each one separately. I'll do the first one here.

Elizabeth Bennet is a character who speaks her mind. For that era she could be considered a feminist who is quick to be critical of male motivations. She originally rebukes Mr. Darcy's rather lame proposal which startles him out of his patriarchal shoes. Elizabeth can pry and question as well as be short and to the point.She has wit enough to spar with the cleverness of gentlemen. Even when Elizabeth is in error, she first believes Wickham over Darcy, we still love her for her fiery rashness.
