You dont actually say what information you have been given about J.A. which you are supposed to use here, so its hard to give any help in that respect. You could approach the topic from the point of view that certain characters develop during the course of the book, whereas others remain unchanged. Mrs Bennett for example, remains as foolish at the end of the book as she was at the beginning - her delight that three daughters are married is undiminished by the fact that Lydia's husband is a deceiving rogue. Lydia, herself, doesn't change either, although her character is gradually revealed as the book progresses. That may also be said of her husband.
The only major character developmant that takes place is in Elizabeth, and to a far greater extent, in Darcy himself. I have always felt that the major flaw of the book is the sea change that appears to take place in the latter (although this is negated by his housekeepers account of him). J.A. also informs us at the end of the book that Kitty develops under Jane and Elizabeth's guidance, although this is more of an epilogue than part of the story.
J.A. clearly identifies strongly with Elizabeth, and one may assume that at least some of her attitudes are the authors own - for example she doesnt agree with Charlotte Lucas's rather cynical attitude to marriage, although she respects it. J.A. chose to remain a spinster rather than marry without love.
Hope this helps.
