acidity depends on the stability of the conjugate base  formed after the removal of hydrogen.the more stable the anion , more acidic is the compound,bcoz it prefers to lose the hydrogen inorder to form a stable compound.as the +I effect of alkyl group increases it pushes electrons towards the carbon bearing negative charge increasing its instability due to high charge.therefore acidic strength increases as -I effect increases or+I effect decreases
