Options are one type of product variant. For example, let's say you sell t-shirts. You have a shirt that comes in two colors (red and blue) and three sizes (small, medium, and large). So you might have a selection of small red, medium red, large red, small blue, medium blue, and large blue.   

If you need to track inventory of these different size/color combinations, then you will want to use options/option sets.
