A one-sided abrupt $pn$ junction diode has a depletion capacitance $C_{D}$ of $50$ $\text{pF}$ at a reverse bias of $0.2 V$. The plot of $1/C^{2}_{D}$ versus the applied voltage $V$ for this diode is a straight line as shown in the figure below. The slope of the plot is ___________ $\times 10^{20}F^{-2}V^{-1}$.

1. $-5.7$
2. $-3.8$
3. $-1.2$
4. $-0.4$
