Those are the implicit variables -- those that are implicitly included in your JSP page without having to explicitly declare them.
The only thing I can come up with for "explicit variables" is any JSP scripting variables explicitly declared within the JSP page. Other than that, I'm not sure what it could mean.

If what was really meant was "what are the implicit variables", they are:
request
response
pageContext
session
application
out
page
exception (on error pages)
