In this lesson, we’re being taught about the Main() method. The Main() method has one parameter named args. Is args a reserved keyword?

No. You could test this yourself by changing args to anything else, or by using args as a variable name. Here’s a link I found that lists C# keywords.

How did the code know not to start with “and”? And not return
“My favorite fruits are and mango and pineapple and lychee!”

Because of how the String.join() method works. The first argument is the separator, the second, in this case, is an array of strings. The separator is placed between the members of the array not before or after.
