In a sample buffer solution as the strength of the weak base decreases (as pKb increases) what happens to the strength of the conjugate acid?

As the strength of the base decreases, the conjugate acid increases in strength

A weak base has a weak conjugate acid

As the strength of the weak base decreases the strength of the conjugate acid decreases as well

It depends, more information is needed to determine the strength of the conjugate acid.
