You do not have to know this. How does it even matter what color is used ? What if I use a doclet that converts the javadoc to PDF and uses some other color ? Such questions will not be asked in the SCJP exam.
Hmmm.... As Bear already said, that mock test is not the best one to use to prepare for SCJP 5 or SCJP 6. Java 1.1 is really old - it's a version of Java from 1998 or so. You will certainly not get questions like "what colors are used in Javadoc for instance methods" on the SCJP exam - so don't waste your time with that mock exam.
Especially popular for preparing for SCJP is the SCJP Study Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates (also known as "K&B"). It contains a lot of practice questions and a practice exam. Also Devaka Cooray's ExamLab is used by many people on the forum here for SCJP practice.

Have you looked on the website? I always thought it was black.
Actually the Java 1.1 documentation was formatted very differently from the documentation we have now, which has remained pretty much unchanged since Java 2 came along.
But I don't remember what colour was used for instance methods, in fact I don't even remember colour-coding being used. It certainly hasn't been used in the Java 2 style documentation, perhaps there were concerns about accessibility. (Remember that a considerable percentage of the human race is colour-blind.)
So,yeah, my opinion of that question is pretty low too.
