One is English ivy. Bright light, no sun, evenly watered.
Two is a Polka Dot plant I think. Same conditions.
Number 3, I would just be guessing.

You might want to be careful with the polka dot plant... they don't like to dry out at all, and they need a lot of humidity, a hard houseplant to grow and keep healthy. They do well in terrariums. Some folks in humid, hot areas plant them outside as annual bedding plants.

Agree with all but #3 I think is a Dracaena marginata, with dark leaves cultivar such as 'Magenta'.
it is common for a Dracaena sold as a topcutting, and studded into small pot for a fuller appearance.

Cordyline lacks gloss. Surface is like touching sandpaper. Very little reflection.
Never waxy . Also prominent central vein on the underside, which im not seeing..
