I have a serious doubt for this:-

Why do we give the url like c:\program files\java\jdk for user environment variables
and c:\program files\java\jre for system environment variables?

Probably because you want all users on the computer to have JRE accessible and select the users with JDK access
Don't see any other reason

[[System environment variables are defined by Windows 2000 Server and
are the same no matter who is logged on to the computer. Administrator
group members can add new variables or change the values, however.

User environment variables can be different for each user of a
particular computer. They include any environment variables you want to
define or variables defined by your applications, such as the path where
application files are located.]]
