Checked:    

A) B=D, C, A, E;  B) D, B=C, A=E

 

There is a typo in an early edition of the book

On A) of #7 of circuits of ap style, could you explain why your answer is right? I thought C and D had the most current immediately after closing because c has 2v/r and D also had 2v/r.

When the switch is first closed, the capacitor acts like a wire.  Both B and D will have no effective resistance because there is a short from one side of the battery to the other where the capacitor is.  For a split second, they will have near zero resistance, and a very large spike in current.

What do you mean by "short"?
