Caroline Bingley is a social snob. She is ostentatious and all about upper-class status. She teases Darcy n a flirtatious manner. She tries to get into Darcy's good graces by asking him to include her regards to his sister in the letter he is writing. She snubs Jane Bennett, exclaiming that she is not good enough for her brother. She insists that her brother cannot be serious about Jane because of Jane's social standing.

Elizabeth is realistic and sensible. She is a down-to-earth character. She is not pompous as Caroline Bingley is. Elizabeth speaks her mind. She does not pretend to be something she is not. She a real character who knows what she wants in life. Elizabeth is bold and daring enough to tell Darcy that she would not marry him because he is prideful and snobbish, even if he were the last man on earth.
