Thanks for the tips.

However, by curved "C", I mean the light brown outline to the immediate left of the oval shape. See red arrow in the pic below. It's part of the same layer as the oval. I clicked on the "C" and tried to stretch, tweak and pull it, but just couldn't get it to follow exactly the curvature of the oval. Would appreciate some guidance on this.
Lets duplicate the right circle (Ctl +D), Then select create circle, ellipse tool in left toolbar (F5). You will see two buttons bellow top menubar, one swich to segment and other swich to arc may be deactivate stage, But in your circle you find 3 dots, and by dragging them you convert them to a segment or arch type.Then Select both shapes by Dragging mouse on both or shift click on each element, now click on path, object to path and now both elements are path now, and selecting both click on division and it will devide the paths and you get two elements, one will be that arch needed and delete the other one

Also, my intention is to completely replace the brown oval with a capsule shape, if possible. But if not, I can make do with the oval if the curved C issue can be solved. This is after all for my own use. :-)
I have attached one file above (download/file.php?id=12004&mode=view) with capsule cell but circle for balance is left in a gesture. may i completely remove the right circle and put a round edge rectangle?

Thanks for those detailed instructions! I'll need to have my working file opened in Inkscape to be able to understand your step by step help. Since I will only get home late tonight, I may only be able to try it out in the next few days.

As for the proposed capsule shape, now that I have seen how it looks against the larger circle on the left with the logo, I think the oval shape looks better. Let me try adjusting the "C" with your instructions and if it works out, I think I will stick with the oval. For now, please do not spend any of your time on the rounded rectangle.

Most grateful for all your advice and help.
