we have 2 capacitors having unequal capacities and eual charges both are connected to each other in a way such that the positive terminal of one capacitance is connected to the negative terminal of the othere capacitance and vice versa,and between these capacitances we have an induator,how will the charges redistribute themselves,and why?

After connection, V on each C must be the same.
There are two equations:
$$Q'_1 C_1=Q'_2 C_2$$,
$$Q'_1+Q'_2=Q_1-Q_2.$$
Solve them.

the charges will move untill the pd across them is the same.
