$H_2SO_4$ is stronger.

Work Step by Step

Since the central atom is different for the molecules, we can compare them. - The electronegativity of the central atom is a factor that affects the strength. The more electronegative atom makes the stronger oxoacids. Therefore, since "$S$" is more electronegative than "$C$", $H_2SO_4$ is stronger.
