    Answer: A) Social status.

    Explanation: In literature, the theme is the underlying message of a story, it is what critical belief about life is the author trying to convey in the writing of a novel, play, short story or poem. Usually this belief, or idea, is universal and transcends cultural barriers. In the given excerpt from "Sense and Sensibility" we can see developed the theme of social status, as we can see in the sentence "he eyed him with a curiosity which seemed to say, that he only wanted to know him to be rich, to be equally civil to him."
