What about DFHCOMMAREA, TWA, VSAM files? And there are others, too, depending upon circumstances (one example being TCTUA).

• What will happen if some program tries to process a queue on which an ENQ command has been issued by some other program?
Ans Resource unavailable
A partial answer, at best. The question is fuzzy -- what queue (TS, TD, MQ series, etc)? And the answer is even fuzzier -- what does "resource unavailable" mean in terms of EIBRESP or other CICS result (abend, for example)?

I find your first two entries to be wrong too. There are different kinds of RCT entries, you need to examine what you can define in the manuals. And you can not pass information to a CICS DB2 program with SYSTIN. So, to sum it up, as far as I know you did not answer any of the questions properly, or at least fully. And Robert did not mention containers for the third question. You need to do some research on all of these. Learning how and where to search for answers to these questions is a very important skill set, you will need it all your life.

For the RCT entries look in the CICS Resource Definition Guide, there you can find out how to define them (using CEDA). Please feel free to place specific questions, we like to help.
