Answer

Capacitance does not depend on the amount of charge of potential difference between the plates.

Work Step by Step

What is meant is that the capacitance depends on geometry (i.e., shape and separation of the plates) and materials, and doesn’t depend on the amount of charge or on the potential difference between the plates. Changing Q or V doesn’t change C.
