In the Blosum-62, what is indicated by a - number when substituting amino acids?

Substitution introduces AA that is similar in size/chemical properties as the substituted AA
Substitution introduces AA that is not similar in size/chemical properties as the substituted AA
How many points are awarded for a similar amino acid in the sliding analysis of AAs?
How many points are added to gaps in sliding analysis of AAs?
