I wish to know which type of components must exclude.
Simply exclude any components that you don't want the test to examine.
There may be guide line that is why I want to know.
Logic is the usual guide.
Have you read the help files so that you are aware of what the general process is?

It is very difficult to advise you. Normally I would say exclude fasteners. The problem is you may have a 5/16-18 screw in a 1/4-20 tapped hole. You would want to catch that. The problem is if you have a lot of fasteners, your interference list will be long.
Trial and error is your best teacher. Start with excluding nothing. Then try excluding something and see what happens (will you miss something important).
What about rubber washers?
Ever type something and then have to delete the whole thing? Good grief.

It's not really rubber in a CAD system. You just model a flat doughnut and mate it in place. It will show as interference.
You are permitted to use engineering judgement and decision making techniques.
You have an o-ring that gets deformed in the real world assembly.
But in the virtual assembly you do not take the time to create two configurations - OOTB purchased condition and installed condition.
You just use the OOTB torus geometry as purchased and therefore get an indication of Interference Detection from SolidWorks.
Problem: What do I do? Do I incur the cost of modeling a compressed configuration for the assembly or do I make an informed engineering decision to ignore the Interference Detection because I fully understand the problem and understand that this particular interference is not a real issue in the real world assembly?
Now for some people - this problem would be like a ringing phone - they can't help but answer it.
For others, they know that they do not have to answer every ringing phone.
