Are null, false and true are keywords or reserved words?. In certification if they ask for java keywords what would be the answer for the above cases?

All keywords are reserved words, but, not all reserved words are keywords. true, false and null are reserved words but, not because they are keywords but, because they represent literal values.
I hope this clarifys things!

Similarly goto is also reserved word as most people answer wrongly in certification exam. They may become keywords later(in case) in future versions of java Product.
