Product Description

This is a 50-question multiple choice exam over Persuasion by Jane Austen.

Here is an overview/break-down of the format and questions:

Part 1: Characterization Matching with Characterization Quotes (Anne Elliott, Mary Elliott, Elizabeth Elliott, Louisa Musgrove, Lady Russell, Mrs. Clay, Miss Carteret, and Mrs. Smith)

Part 2: Exposition/Backstory Questions (the estate where the Elliott sisters grew up, # of years since Anne and Fredrick's engagement ended, the person who Anne refused for engagement, characters who had a fluctuation of wealth and stature)

Part 3: Rising Action/Climax Questions (places visited in England, examples of Mr. Elliott's flattery and his secret motives, characters with a love of reading, the important story told by Mrs. Smith, Captain Wentworth's quandary after the accident, Anne's assessment of the relationship between Admiral croft and his wife, the moment when Wentworth shares his true feelings and Anne's reaction)

Part 4: Resolution Questions (how things turn out for Elizabeth and Sir Walter, debate about men and women between Anne and Captain Harville, Anne's feelings toward her husband, Mrs. Smith's happiness and what it does and doesn't depend upon)

Part 5: True or False Questions (18 questions about characters and plot; read the book carefully and understand significant moments and interactions)

Part 6: Happily-Ever-After (match up 6 female characters with their husbands or soon-to-be-husbands at the end of the book)

The page numbers on the test correspond with the Penguin Classics (1998) edition, but it is intended to be a "closed book" exam-- so having the same edition would not be necessary.
