Why should we use subnet 255.255.255.255 for a static route?

Hi all, 

My question might be silly or funny to some. But, I am not understanding why should the subnet mask for the static route be 255.255.255.255 when applying for a specific Ip address. When I try the subnet mask of the network it is showing as wrong mask. I am new to networking and wondering some of you might help me understand.

 

Thank you in advance.
