The CMOS inverter between pins 1-2 is biased to act as a linear amplifier by the 10meg. Inverter 1-2 drives inverter 3-4 and 5-6. This makes a high-gain, high-input impedance amplifier which senses the presence of 50/60Hz AC due to capacitive coupling between the wire carrying the AC and the "aerial" probe. Two more inverters are a mulivibrator which is used to drive the Piezo speaker ("bell"). The remaining inverter drives the LED when the AC signal causes the first two inverters to switch.

Are you asking what resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors, LightEmitting Diodes, and a CMOS hex inverter is?

You are asking me to teach you a basic course on Electricity and Electronics. Do you have about 8 weeks? (I don't)
