1. for writing and running servlets what api (java sdk) do we need to install ?
EE enterprise or SE standard edition ??
sun's java web server contains appropriate module that can run servlets... right ?
So one needs such a module to run the servlets ?
2. what about apache web server ? it comes with the servlet engine ? or is it called container ?
3. there are two parts : one is the sdk and the other is runtime environment. the runtime engine required to run servlets is the "container" ? right ? about the sdk ?

Well, you've posted this in the Tomcat forum. Tomcat contains all the necessary J2EE classes to run servlets and JSPs.
Apache is NOT a Java server, but for performance reasons, it's often used to connect to a backend Java server like Tomcat. Tomcat can run just fine without Apache, just a little more overhead on non-Java stuff like basic HTML pages.
I recommend you raid the local bookstore for intro books/magazines on the subject. I think you may also find some recommendations here at the JavaRanch.

You will need the JDK and not just the JRE to run JSP's because they get compiled into servlets at runtime.
