The textbook has a list of what it considers strong acids and bases, so anything other than those is normally considered weak as a start point. Other things to look at include how well the molecules dissociate and stay that way, which would suggest something strong. If we were really looking to examine what would make them strong or weak, we could look at their structures to determine which ones will be the most stable/which state it will be most stable in (its original molecule or its conjugates) as a way to tell, but this is something that is going to take more time to draw out and picture.
