Different types of reaction to be used

In pericyclic reactions, what it is the best way to differentiate the type of reaction that should be used (electrocyclic, cycloaddition, or sigmatropic) when only given one reactant?

 I am getting confused with what type of reaction to use and whether to open a cyclic molecule into a chain or close it into a ring.  

This is a sample question
