1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Please refer to the attachment. Thank-you very much for your co-operation and sorry for the trouble.

2. Relevant equations

Flux = Electric Field x Area

3. The attempt at a solution

Since the electric field varies proportionately with 1/r^2 and the area varies proportionately with r^2, the flux will be constant through all surfaces and the value will be 2(pi)C. Somehow, this doesn't sound correct to me. Can someone please advise? Thank-you very much!
