This is a critical question and will have significant impact on your income tax.

The intent behind the question is to determine whether some or all of a distribution was rolled over to another tax-deferred qualified plan, in which case the transaction is tax-free, or was used for another purpose, in which case the amount of the distribution will be taxed as ordinary income and may, in some cases, also be subject to the 10% penalty tax on early distributions.

"did something else" refers to rolling over to a different or back to the same tax - deferred account.
