It's still attached to the contactor so all you need is a couple of wire nuts and some electrical tape.

Welcome to the forums.

As roughneck pointed out.... that AC flex line MUST be repaired. It appears to never have been installed correctly as the locknut that holds the flex in place is missing.

You know the wires to use at the compressor end. Now you need to go to the air handler and find out which two of the five wires are used. There is no polarity to the connections.
