where Eo=dielectric constant
capacitance is directly related to dielectric constant

I can't understand this solution because here Eo is permittivity. How get this solution? Please tell me.

Permitivity means strengh of the field which allows the field to be exit. If E0 is small indicates it is weak field and hence capacitance is small.
