Hi all,

Is it Ok if I connect a E-Cap with its positive terminal to ground and its negative terminal to a negative voltage such that the voltage at the negative voltage is always negative at all times when compared to its positive terminal

Thanks

Think about it a bit! Pos side is connected to common(ground). Neg side is connected a neg volts with respect to common(ground). What volts polarity appears across cap?
Try it with a resistor if you want to experiment.
