Sturdy allows the Pokémon to survive with 1 HP if attacked at full HP with an attack that would otherwise knock it out. It also prevents One-Hit-KO moves (Fissure, Horn Drill, Guillotine or Sheer Cold).

So Sturdy makes the aforementioned moves fail.

Hope this helps :)

no problem
quick comment: if the attacker has the ability Mold Breaker, Teravolt, Turboblaze, or Neutralizing Gas, then it'll OHKO because those abilities cause the attacker to ignore defenders' abilities. Focus Sash also protects from OHKO moves iirc.
