1- List Group

The purpose of  Bootstrap when creating  "List Group" is to display one content as a list. In fact, only with  HTML, normally you can create a list by using the tags <ul> & <li>. Bootstrap providing  .list-group & .list-group-item classes. It is like a standard to create complex lists.

.list-group & .list-group-item

The following example is very basic, using the  .list-group class applying to the <ul> ​​​​​​​tag and  .list-group-item applying to the  <li> tag:
list-group-example.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   <head>
      <meta charset="utf-8">
      <title>List Group Example</title>
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0/css/bootstrap.min.css">
   </head>
   <body>

      <div class="container mt-3">
         <ul class="list-group">
            <li class="list-group-item">Javascript</li>
            <li class="list-group-item">Css</li>
            <li class="list-group-item">Bootstrap</li>
         </ul>
      </div>

      <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.slim.min.js"></script>
      <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/popper.js/1.12.9/umd/popper.min.js"></script>
      <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
   </body>

</html>
For the two  .list-group & .list-group-item classes, you can create a list without using a pair of tags:   <ul>,<li>:
<div class="list-group">
   <div class="list-group-item">Java</div>
   <div class="list-group-item">C</div>
   <div class="list-group-item">C++</div>
</div>

2- List Group & .badge

The Bootstrap provides  .badge class, which can be used by you to create something to decorate for an element of the list.
.badge
<ul class="list-group">
   <li class="list-group-item">Java <span class="badge badge-success float-right">14.21%</span></li>
   <li class="list-group-item">C <span class="badge badge-primary float-right">11.03%</span></li>
   <li class="list-group-item">C++ <span class="badge badge-secondary float-right">5.60%</span></li>
</ul>

3- List Group & Link

A simple list with links
<div class="list-group">

   <a href = "#" class = "list-group-item active">
     Bootstrap List Groups
   </a>

   <a href = "#" class = "list-group-item">Bootstrap Buttons</a>
   <a href = "#" class = "list-group-item">Bootstrap NavBar</a>
   <a href = "#" class = "list-group-item">Bootstrap Tables</a>
</div>

4- List Group & .active,.disabled

The  .active class is used together with  .list-group-item when you want to highlight the current list-group-item, to emphasize that the list-group-item is selected. Otherwise, if you do not want the user to interact with a list-group-item, you can use the .disable class to disable it.
<div class="container mt-3">
   <h2>Bootstrap Tutorials</h2>
   <div class="list-group">
      <a href = "#" class = "list-group-item">Bootstrap Buttons</a>
      <a href = "#" class = "list-group-item active">
      Bootstrap List Groups (Reading)
      </a>
      <a href = "#" class = "list-group-item">Bootstrap NavBar</a>
      <a href = "#" class = "list-group-item disabled">Bootstrap Tables (Comming Soon)</a>
   </div>
</div>
