Capacitance, voltage and Potential difference

the capacity of parallel plate condenser is 5 micro Faraday. When a glass plate is placed between the plates of the conductor  its potential become 1/8th of the original value. The value of dielectric constant will be
(A)1.6
(B)5
(C)8
(D)40

 

Answer:

The charge remains same

Use Cm=KCo
and
V reduced to 1/8 means capacitance increased 8 times since Q=CV
So, the answer is evident
