Mrs. Bennet on hearing of Mr. Collins's visit

PRIDE-JGK4LV

Jane and Elizabeth attempted to explain to her the nature of an entail. They had often attempted it before, but it was a subject on which Mrs. Bennet was beyond the reach of reason; and she continued to rail bitterly against the cruelty of settling an estate away from a family of five daughters, in favour of a man whom nobody cared anything about.

The phrase "in favour of a man whom nobody cared anything about" most likely reflects

A

Mr. Bennet's feelings towards Mr. Collins

B

Mrs. Bennet's point of view

C

Elizabeth's point of view

D

The opinions of the people in Meryton

E

The opinions of the people in Kent
