If it's homework you should be doing it yourself.

This will not give you an instant answer, but might help you next time with a similar problem.

To find all commands that have something to do with 'zip', try

man -k zip

and 'man whatever' to get more details.

'zip' and 'unzip' are the command-line tools, though the question is quite silly on part of the class, because GUI-tools and command-line allow only unfair comparing results. 'Ark' is actually more comparable to WinZip, as it's a GUI-tool as well and handles ZIP file formats among others.
What kind of a Linux class asks this kind of lame questions?

Debian
