Default tab will be displayed to students who enter anything that is not defined in a Correct or Incorrect tab. Think of it as a catch-all. 

Incorrect tabs are used to give specific feedback for a defined incorrect answer. Of course, since the possible number of wrong entries in most modules is very large, you would also want to have a Default tab with general feedback.

When all of the possible incorrect answers can be predicted, such as in a multiple-choice question, you might want to omit a Default tab or use it only to tell the student they didn't select an answer.
