How old is Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice the novel by Jane Austen?

Elizabeth Bennet is 20 in the novel Pride and Prejudice.

From the novel:

Lady Catherine seemed quite astonished at not receiving a direct answer;
and Elizabeth suspected herself to be the first creature who had ever
dared to trifle with so much dignified impertinence.

"You cannot be more than twenty, I am sure, therefore you need not
conceal your age."

"I am not one-and-twenty."
