01 Please can you help me identify which plant is this ?
as I need to figure out how to take care of them

Inherited the plants from someone moving away
They had them outdoor balcony of their apartment , not sure how much direct sunlight they were getting
Currently in my apartment windows
Getting indirect sunlight
In Hong Kong
I do leave the windows open throughout the day for air / moisture ?
I am beginner level at taking care of plants

Leaves are getting yellowish spots
Leaves are falling off
The plant did have some black insects before in all the small curled up leaves towards the top
tried to get rid of them outdoors before I got the plants indoors
Currently doubtful that im over watering them ( twice a week)
though the water doesnt leak outside of the pot

Any help/insights would be gladly welcome

Looks like a Ficus benjamina possibly.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I agree. I don't know what to do about the falling leaves, but Ficus typically does not like to be moved so they may just be sulking.
