Do element identities reamin the same or change during nuclear decay?

That depends on the nuclear decay type. For gamma decay, the identity does NOT change, but for alpha and beta, it does.

Alpha, Beta, and Gamma

What are three types of nuclear decay?

The main three types are: Alpha, beta, and gamma nuclear radioactive decay. refer to the related question below.

Why are gamma rays not shown in a nuclear reaction?

A nuclear reaction, such as a nuclear bomb or in a nuclear power plant, creates nuclear radiation, which is different then gamma radiation. Gamma radiation is produced primarily by the natural decay of high energy states in atomic nuclei (gamma decay). Or from cosmic sources such as pulsars and radio galaxies. Nuclear radiation is caused by the high energy reaction of atomic particles being broken apart (splitting atoms)

Which of the following is not produced by nuclear decay A Alpha particles B Beta particles C Gamma rays D Delta particles?

There is no such thing as delta particles in nuclear decay.
