Capacitor with Larger Plates

SATPHY-1TCVXA

Capacitor $S$ is charged with a battery. Capacitor $L$ with larger plates (but identical in every other way) is charged with the same battery.

Which table gives correct information about Capacitor $L$ after it has been fully charged by the same battery as Capacitor $S$?

A
Capacitor Property Amount for Capacitor L Compared to Amount for Capacitor S
Charge on Plates larger
Voltage Across Plates same
Capacitance larger
B
Capacitor Property Amount for Capacitor L Compared to Amount for Capacitor S
Charge on Plates larger
Voltage Across Plates same
Capacitance same
C
Capacitor Property Amount for Capacitor L Compared to Amount for Capacitor S
Charge on Plates smaller
Voltage Across Plates same
Capacitance smaller
D
Capacitor Property Amount for Capacitor L Compared to Amount for Capacitor S
Charge on Plates larger
Voltage Across Plates larger
Capacitance larger
E
Capacitor Property Amount for Capacitor L Compared to Amount for Capacitor S
Charge on Plates smaller
Voltage Across Plates smaller
Capacitance larger
