Correct Answer - Option 4 : Plate area, dielectric constant, and plate separation

The capacitance of a parallel plate Capacitor is:

 \({\rm{C}} = \frac{{\epsilon{\rm{A}}}}{{\rm{d}}}\)

\({\rm{C\;\alpha \;}}\epsilon{\rm{\;\alpha \;A\;\alpha }}\frac{1}{{\rm{d}}}\)

Thus, the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor increases with an increase in the overlapping area of plates.

The capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor increases with an increase in the relative permittivity of the dielectric.

The capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor increases with decreases in distance between the plates.
