As we learnt in

Series Grouping -

\frac{1}{C_{eq}}=\frac{1}{C_{1}}+\frac{1}{C_{2}}+\cdots

- wherein

 

 q=\left ( C_{eq} \right )50 = \frac{4C\times C}{4C+C}.50 = 40C

\Rightarrow V_{1} = \frac{40C}{C} = 40 \ V

\Rightarrow V_{2} =\frac{40C}{4C} = 10 \ V


Option 1)

50V, 50V

This option is incorrect

Option 2)

40V, 10V

This option is correct

Option 3)

10V, 40V

This option is incorrect

Option 4)

None of these

This option is incorrect
