Solution

The correct option is D Infinite
Let's connect a battery across the ends of the two plates.


When both plates are connected by a wire, it's a short circuit.

So, the potential difference (ΔV) between the plates is zero.

Therefore, from, C=QΔV, the new capacitance will be infinite.

Hence, option (D) is the correct answer.
