Retain Statistics: the Statistics of the Question prior to modifications will be inherited by the modified Question.
Do not retain Statistics: the Statistics field of the modified Question will become blank.
The radio buttons to confirm whether or not to retain statistics while trying to save Questions with statistics after batch editing, will not be shown if the Show 'Retain Statistics' pop-up warning for modified items checkbox on the Project tab of the Project's configuration page is unchecked. This checkbox is enabled by default, and hence the radio buttons will also appear by default.
