What does it mean for part 1c to comment on the relative stability of the reactants and products?

Since the equilibrium constant is large, we can conclude that at equilibrium there are more products than reactants. Therefore, the products are more stable, while the reactants are more unstable in comparison.

The products will be more stable than the reactants because the equilibrium concentration is large!

The bigger the equilibrium constant, the more stable the products are

A large K suggests that the forward reaction is favored. This means that the products are relatively more stable compared to the reactants because the reactants will have a tendency to split/change.

A comment of the stability of products and reactants means an explanation of what the reaction tends to and why.
