- Series & Parallel Capacitor formulae

My textbook solution states that 1 & 2 are in parallel and so is 3 & 4 and those 2 are in series. That is, (1 P 2) S (3 P 4). My thinking is such: points A & B are of same potential, say V, C & D are of same potential, say x and E & F are are of same potential, say 0. So I can say that 1 and 3 are in series and so is 2 &4. Therefore, I can say (1 S 3) P (2 S 4). I'm sure there is a flaw in my method. Please be kind to point it out.
