Community Wiki crediting each solver:

1.

MOONLIGHT - Solved by @AmruthA - Moo 'n' light. A cow goes moo and the bulb gives off light.

2.

CABINET - Solved by @BeastlyGerbil - It's a cab (taxi) in the letters ET, giving cab in et

3.

BORDER CONTROL - Solved by @pb8330 - It's the abbreviation for control next to a line which represents a border.

Guessing 1 -

it is moonlight because cow makes sound moo- and new line 'n'(\n)and then light from bulb.As bulb is in below line of cow.

2 might also be -

EXIT - taXI is covering the letter "XI" and it is moving out.

3 might be -

Line of control .

    $\begingroup$ @Ria For full clarity, I suggest leaving a comment on each answer to say exactly which ones are right (I almost downvoted your question because I thought EXIT was the intended answer for #2, but CABINET is much better). Then accept whichever you like :-) $\endgroup$ Jan 8, 2017 at 15:59

border control.

1 is

Moonlight as found by Amruth

2 is

CABINET - it is a cab in et

3 might be

Out of control. Or a more likely suggestion from @pb8330 - border control
