Voltage across capacitors that are in parallel is the same.
thumb_up_alt 0 like thumb_down_alt 0 dislike

Yes, the capacitors placed in parallel have same voltage. But initially if C1 has high voltage than C2 then the charges from C1 moves towards C2 because of potential difference until both capacitors have same voltages

No matter what u connect as long as u connect it in parallel it will have the same voltage

Not same but we will get addition of both values when capacitors are connected in parallel...
