A parallel-plate capacitor has plates of unequal area. The larger plate is connected to the positive terminal of the battery and the smaller plate to its negative terminal. Let Q+ and Q- be the charges appearing on the positive and negative plates respectively. 1.  Q+ > Q– 2.  Q+ = Q–  3.  Q+ < Q- 4.  The information is not sufficient to decide the relation between Q+ and Q–
