How do I understand which is which?
C6H6 + energry -> C6H6
NaCl + energy -> Na+Cl
CH4 + 2O2 -> CO2 + 2H2O + energy

Assuming you mean:
- C6H6(l) + energy → C6H6(g), you can say that the reaction affected intermolecular forces because the single molecules don't change. The broken bonds were between molecules of benzene.
- NaCl(l) + energy → Na+(aq) + Cl-(aq) Sodium chloride is technically not a molecule, but you can see that the strong ionic bonds intra-NaCl are broken.
- This is a combustion reaction, in which the products are totally different. Both the inter- and intra- molecular bonds are affected.
