(A)

#### Explanation:

Two given capacitors are connected as shown in figure above.

The total capacitance

#C_"T"=C_1+C_2# .........(1)

For a charge

# C_"T"=q/V#

where#V# is voltage drop across capacitors and is equal for both capacitors.

If

#C_1=q_1/V# ......(2) and

#C_2=q_2/V# .....(3)

Dividing equation (2) by (3) we get
