Newbie Q- Univega Activa Model -how can I tell?

We got two of these bikes from our neighbors who moved, they appear to be in very good shape, I havenít ridden a bike since I was a kid and want to start riding again, how can I tell what model of bike I have so I can do some research? I didnít ride bikes with gears as a kid and have no idea how to use them! Any other advice for a newbie is welcome😊 Thank you!

Univega Activa came in a bunch of different models at various levels.

What words are on the frame and components? Most of the Univega hybrids from the early 90s were 3x7 speed(3 rings on the crank/pedal and 7 cogs on the rear wheel) and were entry or mid level for price and quality.

They, like many hybrids from the early 90a, can last a long time.
