For example when I have URL:

https://dirask.com/questions?category=programming

What is the professional name of the parameters we pass after question mark '?'
In this case: 

?category=programming

In this case the variable name is category and value is programming.

You can call it url parameter or request parameter. First one name is most commonly used. Second one name is used by Spring framework.
