    Neither.
    L and R are in series.
    C is in parallel.

    We certainly can't help you with which alpha to use since you give no indication what "alpha" even is.

    Instead of trying to pick which memorized formula to throw at the problem, how about taking a shot at actually analyzing it?

    Show your best effort and we will try to guide you from where you are to where you need to get.
