for the stability of carbocation always remember this trick,
This is the order of checking the stability in sequence wise.
+M => +mesomeric effect {learn the +M effect showing series}
+I effect {+r effect}

@ joseph 
1- increasing substitution increaseas stability 
we look at the no. of bonding electrons that are attached to carbocation beacuse those bonding electrons , will help in allivating the +ve charge . 
bonding electron from adjacent sigma bond may overlap with the unoccupied p orbital of the carbocation . 
this is what we called hyperconjugation . 
since the overlap supplies electron density to the electron deficient carbocation carbon , we predict the increasing number of hyperconjugative interactions increase carbocation stability . 
increasing the no of bonds adjacent to carbocation by increasing the no. of alkyl group , attached to carbocation carbon result in increasing the stability . 
thatswhy tertiary should be more stable than secondary . 
so, primary
BUT this case might vary case by case , 
if u have any kind of exception example then u can ask , i will give the reason 
all the best

							Generally the stability of carbocation is tertiary > secondary > primary > methyl this is generally decided by mesomerism ,inductive effect and the hyperconjugation
