I assume you want "exact" answers for these, the usual kind of request for these types of questions.
All your given angles are combinations of the standard angles of 30, 45, 60 etc
e.g. 75 = 45+30
15 = 4530
105 = 60+45
You should also have memorized or have quick access to the trig ratios of these
e.g. sin 45° = √2/2 , cos 60° = 1/2 , etc
evaluate each one, the do the arithmetic
e.g.
sin75 = sin(45+30)
= sin45cos30 + cos45sin30
= √2/2(√3/2) + √2/2(1/2)
= √6/4 + √2/4 = (√6 + √2)/4
carefully do the others, easy to make errors with those radicals

You could also have done some preliminaray simplification using the complementary angle properties
e.g.
cos15° = sin75°
cos105 = sin(15) = sin15
so sin 75cos 105sin 15+cos 15
sin75  (sin15) + sin15 + sin75
= 2sin75 + 2sin15
= 2(sin75+sin15)
Now you only have to do two of the calculations
