(c) Use your results from parts (a) and (b) to determine which is thermodynamically more stable relative to its atoms at 1000. K, Cl2 or F2.

Can someone please explain this?

From previously in the question you foudn that chlorine favors its reactants more than fluorine because the K of chlorine is smaller. Since Cl2 is on the reactants side it is more stable there than flourine is in F2

Thermodynamic stability referring to the relative energy of the closed systems, in which the lowest energy is considered more "thermodynamically" stable.
