This question already has an answer here:

I am really curious to know about the differences in the names of Community Wiki and Non-Community Wiki prevailing in Stack Exchange.

As I have known about what a Community Wiki is pretty much, I just specifically want to know the existence of Non-community wiki.

  1. What is the reason behind its existence?
  2. What is the advantage that I get from it?

I have seen the term Non-Community wiki in the Badges area.

Bronze Badge - You must have a total score of 100 in at least 20 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

Silver Badge - You must have a total score of 400 in at least 80 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

Gold Badge - You must have a total score of 1000 in at least 200 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

Hence so curious.

Non-Community Wiki is not anything. In the context you mentioned in the descriptions of the badges, it simply means "A post that is not a Community Wiki". There is no special Non-CW classification on posts.

For your specific examples (emphasis & parenthesis mine):

Bronze Badge - You must have a total score of 100 in at least 20 non-(community wiki) answers to achieve this badge.

This specifically means you need to have a total score of 100 in 20 answers that are not Community Wiki. This same definition applies to the other badges.
