Pick quotes suitable for each character, theme, setting, etc. (depending on what AQA says in the specification you need to know - I don't do AQA so I don't know what they ask for specifically). Make sure they have meaning in the novel but also have connotations which will make them easier to analyse. Bonus points if they have literary devices in them, but don't choose meaningless quotes just because they use hyperbole etc.

Which question? Could you give an example?

Look at the AQA specification and see what they mark you based upon. On the AQA website there should also be some exemplar essays, which have been graded WITH examiner comments, so you can see what you need to do to gain the marks.

I suggest you do some practise essays and ask your teacher to mark them for you.

Thank you! I would but my teacher says she never has time to mark them even now with our GCSEs so close. A question like how are attitudes to marriage presented.

If you Google, I'm sure there will be a lot of resources from over the years. Websites such as Shmoop and GetRevising usually have really good theme analysis and quotes too. Have you bought a revision guide? If not, I'd really recommend it. York Notes books (for which there is one on Pride and Prejudice) are really good, and they give you paragraph examples. They'll also give you key quotes to use.

As I said before, the specification and exemplar answers will help you with structuring essays and analysing the right things.

This is a really good link, for analysis and for quotes:
