Solution

Good conductors offer significantly low resistance to the flow of electric current. E.g. copper, silver
Resistors offer comparatively high resistance/opposition to the flow of electric current. E.g. tungsten, nichrome
Insulators offer very high resistance to the flow of electric current and don't allow current to flow through them. E.g. plastic, rubber
