What do they have in common?

Conductors and Semiconductors both let electricity pass through them. and both have the word conductor in them.

Insulators and semiconductors both stop electrons though, considering semiconductor could stop electrons or let them slowly pass by

some strong insulators include glass, wood, and rubber.

Now, the difference..

Conductors let energy pass through them, Insulators, and sometimes semiconductors, do not, also, insulator does not have the word conductor in it.

Conductors cannot stop electrons, while the other two can.

strong conductors include iron, water, copper.
