Could someone list examples for each of these systems?

An open system is any that has openings where matter and heat can be transferred into/out of, such as an open top cup. A closed system is one that doesn't have any physical openings, but can transfer heat through its walls, such as a closed box. And an isolated system is one that doesn't have any physical openings and is also insulated so no heat can be transferred into/out of it either, such as a high-quality cooler.

In an open system matter and energy can exchange with the surroundings, an example is a beaker of water.
In a closed system energy can exchange with the system, an example is a sealed beaker of water.
In a isolated system nothing exchanges with the surroundings, an example is a combustion of glucose in a bomb calorimeter.

An open system: an open water bottle
A closed system: a closed water bottle or pot
An isolated system: I'm not exactly sure but I believe a hydroflask can be an isolated system
