Default Primary and supplemental rank order list?

I read this on And I'm clueless what this exactly means! Anyone plz clarify

Your primary rank order list could include preliminary, transitional, categorical, and advanced programs. These programs on the primary rank order list are the key to the computer algorithm used for The Match. Supplemental rank order list(s) are used if you are ranking advanced (PGY-2) positions on your primary rank order list and also want to secure a first-year (PGY-1) position. It is possible for you to match to an advanced position, but not to a first-year program, which would make you “partially matched.” If this occurs, you are committed to the PGY-2 position, and then must seek a PGY-1 position through the Supplemental Offer and Acceptance ProgramSM (SOAPSM) or after Match Week.
