Can anybody help me find the:

The flux linkage with sphere of radius R placed at x=x0 (distance on the x axis).

It would have been better if you told the direction(s) of the Field , or isnt there any field here? , Flux is the electric field through unit area. I assume that the elEctric field lines entering the sphere are all parallel and in the same direction.Then the number of lines entering the sphere= No. of lines leaving the sphere , and hence the there is no net flux.

I am unfamiliar with the term "flux linkage" in this context. Can you restate your question?

I am so sorry. I forgot that a charge Q is enclosed in the sphere and the electric field lines are parallel to x axis from left to right.and flux linkage means simply flux.

Gauss's law relates the total flux through a closed surface (like this sphere) to the net charged contained within it. That's all you need.
