What does it mean by relative anion stability?

when looking at relative anion stability, you are trying to determine which had stronger induction qualities. in other words which one does a better job at pulling a negative charge away.

does this have to do with determining the strength of the acid

Yes, if the inductive effect withdraws electron density, say from an OH- bond, the acidity of the compound will increase.
