Using the Allow Abstain setting adds Abstain as a choice to your questions. You can use it to allow your voters to choose not to vote on a specific question, versus choosing to not submit a ballot:

Selecting the Allow Abstain setting only affects individual questions, not the entire ballot. Voters can abstain from one or more questions, but still vote on the remaining questions.
