Solution :-

French society was divided into 3 estates. The third estate benefitted the most. The third estate consisted of Peasants, artisans, Small peasants, landless labour, servants, big businessmen, merchants, court officials, lawyers, etc. The groups that were forced to relinquish power came under the 1st and 2nd estates. These people had enjoyed certain privileges by birth. With the revolution, these people in the 1st and 2nd estates lost their privileges, because inequality was one of the root causes of the revolution and the revolution tried to bring equality to society.
