Need help in step response circuit diagram

This isn't a homework question! I posted the question for context purpose.

So I understand that at t>0 the switch moves to b. Hence the first circuit diagram (pictured) I understand.

However for the 2nd circuit diagram (picture 2) when asked to transform to s domain. Why does this answer include the 10/s. To my understanding because the switch already switched to b, the 10V is no longer considered hence shouldn't be included as 10/s in the transformation circuit.

Can anyone explain this to me? Whether the answer key is wrong or are my concepts wrong?

Thank you so much in advance!!

The switch was at 'a' for a long time. So what is the voltage across the capacitor at t=0+?

Delta²

As I can see from picture 1, it asks for the voltage V(t) for $t\geq 0$ so we are interested for the V(t) for t=0 too (not only for t>0).

Ah that would make sense..thanks!

Um 10V?
