eletric flux and charge have same units ie coloumb

is it a coincidence or some similarity exists btw these two?

electric flux density D= εE is used for calculating flux ψ not E .why?(read tht it is done for practical reasons) please explain the practical reasons ,if any.

Electric flux is in V/m or Volt per distance, not coulomb.

no,V/m is electric field intensity not flux

Electric charge unit is ampere seconds (A s). Electric flux unit is volt meters (V m).
