    What you call it is a matter of opinion.  Asking which is best makes no sense as jelly and jam are different things - jam has the fruit in as well as the juice, while jelly is just the juice.

    All of them are preserves because they preserve the fruit.

    "Preserves" can be a name for all of the items you mentioned because they are "preserved" 

    Jelly, a product usually made just from the juice of the fruit, pectin and sugar. Generally no seeds, skin or fruit bits. 

    Jam, a product made from the fruit as well as the juices, pectin and sugar. Usually contains fruit, sometimes seeds and skins.

      Preserves is a blanket term, but it's also a specific type.  As opposed to jelly which uses only  juice or jam which uses smashed bits of the fruit, "preserves" usually have large or whole pieces of fruit in a jelly base.
