Whenever I see a capacitor diagram/an image like this i always freak about because

**1) I don't know what to ask myself when I see it**

**2) I'm not sure I know what's going on - other than the fact the the | | means: +| |-**

I don't know what the squiggly lines /\/\/ mean either :(

3) I don't know how to solve this particular problem or how the pieces fit together.

4) I don't know how to distinguish a capacitor in series and a capacitor in parallel - especially in this problem

Please help! I've studied for the physics test I am about to take tonight at 7 pm and I've understood all the plug and chug problems.

It's this stuff in particular I just don't get.
