Query Regarding classless routing protocol

Q:-- Which of the followings are true regarding classless routing protocols.

A.) default-gateway is required.

In explanation it is mentioned that in classless routing protocols default-gateway is not required.

But I think default-gateway is required in both classless or classful routing protocols,bcoz if router receives a request for a network which router don,t know, it will drop the packet, if default-gateway is not mentioned.

Kindly give me feedback regarding this.

Thanks in advance..
