Splicing is a modification of pre mRNA when all introns are removed and exons are joined. What is a splice junction pair? It is two exons which connected together?

Splice junctions are the exon-intron junctions, at which splicing takes place. Splice junction pairs are the pairs of such junction (to cut an intron you need to splice in two junctions). So, you are almost there, since two exons will be joined in correspondence of two subsequent splice junctions. You might find these slides useful (slide B-6)
