I'm not going to do your homework for you but things in tension generally include any types of cables, compression will be columns/brick walls, shear force is a force at 90 degrees to the edge of a beam/bolt (90 degrees to the hypothetical normal force which would create tension or compression), and torsion refers to shafts/screws being twisted.

you will get more help when you have shown that you have actually made an attempt at this question.
