Mrs. Fairfax

JNEYR-OLDQYY

When Jane reveals to Mrs. Fairfax that she is engaged to Mr. Rochester, the older woman states:

You are so young, and so little acquainted with men, I wished to put you on your guard. It is an old saying that 'all is not gold that glitters;' and in this case I do fear there will be something found to be different to what either you or I expect.

What does this quotation reveal about Mrs. Fairfax?

A

She has seen enough of the world to be cautious and slightly jaded.

B

She does not trust Mr. Rochester's intentions.

C

She thinks of Jane as a daughter and simply wants what is best for her.

D

She is envious of the social elevation that Jane will undergo when she marries Rochester.

E

She trusts Rochester's motivations, but not Jane's.
