Actually, the mentioned circuit is a snuber circuit for the protection of SCR. After solving the equations you can find out the values of Cs and Rs in terms of t and R1 which is series resistance connected after switch. Actually, (dv/dt)max and (di/dt)max should be given which is missed in the given data. Also, switching frequency is absent which determines the value of t.
