    How do we call a school publication that is compiled usually by a graduating class and that serves as a record of the year's activities?

    1. yearbook
    2. senior yearbook
    3. graduation yearbook

    1. yearbook
    2. senior yearbook
    3. graduation yearbook
    1. Appropriate for students in any year group at any time
    2. The same, but only for senior school students
    3. The same, but only for the year that "graduates" from that school at that time.

    I believe the answer is embedded in your own question.

    PS: I would query your need to ask such a question.

    In the US, it's called a yearbook. Period. The seniors/graduating class have a bigger section, but it is for all the students in the school. All the other phrases you used, in both posts, are not what this is called.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
