Trivia Quiz {3} - Answers

1. Finish the quote and tell who said it:  "Charlotte! Engaged to Mr. Collins! _________!"

"Charlotte! Engaged to Mr. Collins! Impossible!"
~Elizabeth Bennet

2.  Who does Mr. Bennet say would be able to "jilt Lizzy creditably"?

Mr. Wickham

3. What song do Mary and Maria Lucas perform together at the Philips' Christmas party?

God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen

4.  Of what are the famous shelves in the closet "the very essence"?

Practicality and convenience.

5. What does Lizzy think must have happened when Maria freaks out about Anne de Bourgh stopping by the parsonage?

The pigs must have got into the garden.  "Is this all? I expected at least that the pigs had got into the garden! Here is nothing but Lady Catherine and her daughter."

6. How old is Lizzy?

Twenty.  "I am not one and twenty."  (This is an old-fashioned way of speaking which contains an understood "yet," meaning that Lizzy is in fact just twenty.)

7. What excuse does Lizzy give for wanting to return home after her walk with Colonel Fitzwilliam?

She has a headache.  "A sudden headache.  Perhaps I've walked too far today."

8.  What does Mr. Darcy beg most fervently in his first proposal?

"To relieve my suffering and consent to be my wife."

9.  What time is it during Mr. Darcy's first proposal?


10.  Complete the quote and tell who said it:  "I had not known you a month before..."

"I had not known you a month before I felt you were the last man in the world whom I could ever marry!"  ~Elizabeth Bennet

And our winner is... Lizzie, with 9.5 points!  Her answers were all correct but one, and even that was half correct (#4, for she said only "practicality" and not "convenience.")

EDIT: It has come to my attention that I made a mistake in the calculation of points-- Katrina of Edelweiss Patterns also accumulated 9.5 points, so she and Lizzie tie for first place!  Sorry for the mistake, Katrina!

Thanks for playing, everyone!  Check back on Monday for a new game!

But I want to know how many I got right! ;P

That's what I thought at first too, about the one and twenty... but in fact I now think she worded it that way because Lady Catherine had said "you can not be more than twenty, I am sure"... so it's like she was conceding to that, but not offering any further information. :P

Yay, I am so excited!! I don't think I've ever won anything online before. In the spirit of honesty, though, as I was perusing others' answers I found someone I think answered more correctly than I did, since you said the answer for the time was 6:17. I actually said 6:15, and Katrina @ Edelweiss Patterns said 6:17. In that case, (unless I'm missing something) wouldn't she have 9.5, and I only 8.5?

Great quiz, I enjoyed playing! =)

Katrina @ Edelweiss Patterns said...

Oh, that's sweet of you, Lizzie! Yes, when I read the answers here, I thought, "But that's exactly what I answered!" I think I only said "practicality" instead of "practicality and convenience", but the rest were correct. Oh well! It's just a game. :)

Katrina, I am so sorry! You and Lizzie are right: you both had 9.5 points (you also said "practicality" but not "convenience"). I made a mistake in the calculations and thought you only had 8.5 points! I'll go back and edit it to say that you tied for first.

("For better or for worse, I tied with Gilbert Blythe for FIRST...")

Katrina @ Edelweiss Patterns said...

No worries, Miss Dashwood! There's just one thing I still don't quite understand - I answered "6:17" and Lizzie answered "6:15", so one of had to have gotten it wrong. If I'm thinking correctly, one of us would still get 8.5. Hope this isn't too confusing!

Miss Marianne said...

I believe Miss Dashwood decided that if one was within a few minutes of 6:17 it still counted. ;)
