Organic Chemistry 1

I’m working on a Chemistry question and need guidance to help me study.

This is for my Intro level organic chemistry course (undergraduate). So please do not give a complex answer that an entry level organic chemistry student would not be able to explain. the question is:

In lecture, various parameters that alter the strength of an acid were discussed. Due to its higher electronegativity, fluorine exerts a stronger inductive effect than chlorine and therefore helps to stabilize the negative charge on an anionic conjugate base better. However, 4-fluorophenol (pKa=9.92) is a weaker acid than 4-chlorophenol (pKa=9.41). How can this be explained?

if you do not know the answer or are not confident, do not bid.
