The dielectric constant varies, depending on the material.

Correct: it is a dimensionless number.

DK measurement is the measurement of the relative dielectric constant of liquids and solid material. It is a measure of permeability.

Unit of Phase constant is Radians per metre .

The units for Rydberg's constant are [L-1].

YES IT IS. Any quantity which is ratio of two physical quantities having same unit is dimensionless. Dielectric constant is ratio of Permittivty of medium to the permittivity of free space. As Permittivity of medium and permittivity of free space both have same units(F/m ie Farad/meter) dielectric constant becomes dimensionless quantity

'Dielectric constant' is an archaic term for relative permittivity. They are one and the same.

If the temperature increases, the conductivity will increase too which means the dielectric constant is reduced

No, these are two unrelated properties of a material.

It can be taken as infinity

dielectric constant is a property of a material, this question is asking the property of a two mixed together, in an undeclared ratio. But yes dielectric constants can be measured. The problem you will have is keeping a uniform mix.
