kill vs killall vs pkill

I was reading the man pages for kill killall and pkill.

It looks like all of them have a --signal flag I can use to specify a signal name.

I took the quiz for signals and specified true for the following answer and got it wrong and I am not sure why

kill, killall and pkill all accept a process name as a parameter. True or False?

    The question is about process name, not signal name :)
