I'm a little confused about this problem. I attached the pic. The solution manual states " capacitors C1 and C3 are in(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

series with each other and in parallel with capacitor C2."

I don't understand why it has to be C1 and C3 in series which is parallel with C2.

Can't it also be C2&C3 in series and parallel with C1
