2. Relevant equations

I know for RL circuit T = L/R

For RC circuit it is RC

But how to go ahead for RLC circuit.

3. The attempt at a solution

I calculated for RL as 1/4 = 0.25

And RC as 1

Then I added both time constant and got 1.25

Book answer is 0.5. How to solve this?

In solved examples they've used RL or RC circuits.
