Is this your homework? – Ganesh R. Jan 4 '14 at 17:41
yes, wifi network – Sariksa Thapa Jan 4 '14 at 17:53
If you have questions that are homework, please mention that in your post. Also, you should show what exactly you've already tried. Especially with homework questions, we expect you to show your own research and tell us what you didn't understand and what you need help with. Having other people write out the full answer for you won't help you in the long run—ideally you should learn something from asking, which also involves researching (and asking a good question) first. – slhck Jan 4 '14 at 20:21

The destination with mask matches any address. The gateway mentioned next to it,, is thus the default gateway. Your interface connected to this gateway has address, but the routing table does not specify whether this is an ethernet or wireless interface. Other possibilities (like a VPN) are inconsistent with the table.

this is wireless network. So i I were to uploading a file to some external network, what IP address would the traffic be sent to? and what interface would be used? – Sariksa Thapa Jan 4 '14 at 17:53
@SariksaThapa Like I said in my answer, it will be sent to, and the interface that will be used is the one which has IP address You can check which interface that is with the command ifconfig, searching for one that says: inet: – MariusMatutiae Jan 4 '14 at 17:57
