Important is in the eye of the beholder. What's important to one person or company may not be important to others.

For example, I don't use any JEE APIs other than JPA, Servlets and JSP. So all of the other are completely unimportant to me.

As an interview question, I find it pretty much useless. It might have been used as a springboard from which to ask more questions, or delve deeper into a particular API, but then I would have phrased the question differently to remove the subjectivity.
