    Hello,

    This looks like a homework question.
    What do you think what happens?

    On way to go about is to look at each proposed answer and see if you can describe either why it might be true or why it can't be true.

    Even simpleton like myself knows that C is the wrong answer.

    Hello,

    Have a look at the attached PDF.
    The pages 24 and further will explain what a capacitor is and how the capacitor works.
