RPO settings is the value that tells how frequent the replication must be carried out.
For example you have set it as 4 Hours. So every 4 hours the source VM's changes are replicated onto the destination copy.

As it says in the screenshot if you minimize the RPO the data loss is less as you are replicating the data at small intervals. If your RPO is 4 hours and your machine just did a replication, it will do the next one in next 4 hours. If at the 3.5 hours point the source crashed, all the data in that 3.5 hours after the last replication will be lost. If you set it to 15 mins for example, at any given point of time you will lose max of 15 mins of data.

For Point in time instances, read the documentation.
