Looks like you can enable just clicking on respective service,

If you want to enable for HBase,

Ranger -> Config -> Hbase Ranger Plugin (Just Click on OFF and get on and) -> Save the setting.

Eable same for all like YARN -> Config->YARN Ranger PlugIn(save and Restart the Ranger)

To enable Ranger plugins for HDP 2.3 take a look at the below link. You will have to click on each component link for the steps.

https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.3.0/bk_Ranger_Install_Guide/content/ch_enable_r...

The method you indicated in the second screenshot was only introduced with HDP 2.3.4 onwards.

but these steps are impossible to memorize , are they part of HDPCA exam?

No need to memorize them. You'll be provided with access to these HDP 2.3 docs during the exam.
