I included the last sentences. I find it difficult to rephrase the author's description of the characters' personality. I'll include it in my next post.

1) He remarks that among (of?) all his daughters, Lizzy is his favourite because she is cleverer and livelier.
Mrs Bennet is offended by his critical remark towards her daughters and complains that he has no respect for her poor nerves.
2) Mr. Benner replies ironically by saying that he has known them for twenty years.
3) In the last paragraph there is again the voice of the omniscient narrator. Jane Austen describes Mr. and Mrs. Bennet and the relative incompatibility of their characters in a series of balanced sentences.
