I understand what gaps and clusters are but I don't know what "outliers" are. Please explain it for me. Thanks

An outlier is a datapoint at one end of the distribution that is separated from the rest of the distribution by a (large) gap. For example, when the age distribution of people in a high school class taught by a retiree is plotted, the age of the retiree is an outlier.

A gap is what lies between clusters or between a cluster and an outlier. It is a "hole" in the data, space where you would expect to find sample values based on the notion that the distribution is continuous, but you don't.
