I've done my java program using jena lib. I want my "ResultSet" (sparql result) to be extremely RDF syntax (pure RDF) not RDF/XML format can anyone guide me ?

RDF is a data model; there is no RDF syntax per se. There are various RDF serializations, or syntaxes for representing RDF in a file. RDF/XML is the only one that is a W3C standard for now, but Turtle, a subset of another one called N3, is becoming more popular and looks like it's moving towards standard status. N-Triples is another that is simple but verbose, and not as popular as Turtle (or even RDF/XML), and there are various discussions about JSON-based syntaxes to represent RDF triples.

If you're talking about serialising SPARQL results...
It's important to note that SELECT/ASK queries do not return RDF.
...the faster the W3C standardise Turtle and N-Triples, the better. (Better late than never.)
