Let's see how much attention you paid when you READ this amazing novel. But Beware! ~ The inside cover of my copy says, "Pride and Prejudice was first published in 1813. This edition is based on the 1813 edition. Punctuation and spelling have been brought into conformity with modern English usage." And so this test won't be rejected, let me tell you that all the words that show up as spelling errors are actually names, not mistakes.

    Towards the beginning of chapter 18 - ". . . she found herself suddenly addressed by Mr. Darcy, who took her so much by surprise in her application for her hand that, without knowing what she did, she accepted him." (They were dancing)

    What was the question Miss Bingley asked Elizabeth at Pemberly that upset and insulted both Mr. and Miss Darcy as well as Elizabeth herself?
    "Why have you come here? Do you wish to insult Mr. Darcy?"
    "What brought you here Miss Eliza? A wish to see the beauty of a home which you will never be able to equal in your own?"
    "Pray, Miss Eliza, are not the -shire militia removed from Meryton? They must be a great loss to YOUR family."
    "What drew you to Pemberly? Was it perhaps the beautiful grounds? or was it the wish to unsettle the residents with your unwelcome presence?"
