Here, the loss in energy (difference between initial and final energy) is given by the following relation

ΔU = C1C2.(V1 - V2)2 / 2(C1 + C2)

here,

C1 = 150 pF = 150 x 10-12 F

C2 = 50 pF = 50 x 10-12 F

V1 = 220 volts

V2 = 0 volts

so, we get 

ΔU = [(150 x 10-12 x 50 x 10-12) x (220 - 0)2] / [2x(150 x 10-12 + 50 x 10-12)] 

which can be calculated...
