1 ) The 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 indicates traffic from any source to be forwarded to the next hop IP of 18.104.22.168, only if the destination network is not found in any of the routing table entries. This will be used as the default route a.k.a gateway of last resort.
2) This routes traffic destined for the 192.168.10.x network to be forwarded to the next hop IP of 22.214.171.124.

1. This defines the default route. This is the route taken when the path to a destination is not found in the RIB.
2. You define in your statement a path to the host 192.168.10.10 255.255.255.0 through 126.96.36.199 but in actuality, since you didn't define a /32 specific host, you are actually defining a path to the subnetwork 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 through 188.8.131.52. Since you did not define this route as a /32 route, the router will AND the host and subnetwork and create a path to the network through the defined gateway in the routing information base.
