Concept: Capacitance

A:

B:

C:

10/100 [100/100] [10/1]

Which configuration has the largest capacitance?

[Please note for future reference that the different background colors represent possibly different dielectric constants for the three cases, which allows the capacitance to vary for the identical geometric arrangements of the conductors shown.]
