    He calls the knaves, Jacks, this boy! And what coarse hands he has! and what thick boots.

      Estella

    • B.

      Mrs Joe

    • C.

      Miss Haversham

    Correct Answer
    A. Estella
    Explanation
    Estella is the correct answer because the given description matches her character. Estella is referred to as a "boy" and is criticized for having coarse hands and thick boots. This description suggests that Estella is not traditionally feminine or refined, which aligns with her character as a cold and unfeeling young woman who is raised to break men's hearts.

    Your sister's a master-mind.

    • A.

      Miss Haversham

    • B.

      Mrs Joe

    • C.

      Estella

    Correct Answer
    B. Mrs Joe
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Mrs Joe. This is because Mrs Joe is known for being strict and controlling, often exerting her authority over her sister and Pip. She is portrayed as a dominant and overpowering figure in the novel, making her a mastermind in her own way. Miss Haversham and Estella, on the other hand, are manipulative characters but do not exhibit the same level of control and dominance as Mrs Joe.

    "What have I done! What have I done!" She wrung her hands and crushed her white hair and returned to this cry over and over again. "What have I done!"

    • A.

      Mrs Joe

    • B.

      Estella

    • C.

      Miss Haversham

    Correct Answer
    C. Miss Haversham
    Explanation
    The given excerpt describes a character who is overwhelmed with regret and guilt, repeatedly questioning their actions. The mention of "white hair" suggests that the character is older, which narrows down the options to Mrs Joe and Miss Havisham. However, the mention of "wrung her hands" and the intense emotional reaction indicate a deeper level of remorse, which aligns more closely with Miss Havisham's character. Miss Havisham is known for her regret and obsession with her past actions, making her the most likely answer.

    I didn't bring you up by hand to badger people's lives out. It would be blame on me and not praise, I had. People are put in the hulks because they murder, and because they rob and forge, and do all sorts of bad; and they always begin by asking questions. Now, you get along to bed.

      Estella

    • B.

    • A.

      Miss Haversham

    • B.

      Mrs Joe

    • C.

      Estella

    Correct Answer
    A. Miss Haversham

Mrs. Joe is the sister of the narrator and Estella is a different character altogether, so they are not the correct answers.
