This all terms are related with the process.
So, What is process?
--> Whenever executable file is loaded into RAM is called a process.

Throughput :- Number of process completed per unit time. More is good.

Turn around time :- Duration between process starts and process completes. Less is good.

Waiting time :- Total time that has been spent by a process in waiting state. Less is good.

Response time :- Duration between the executable file loaded into RAM and 1st instruction to be executed.
